A First For Me!!

I know I haven't posted much but I'm trying to work my way back into crafting. It felt overwhelming and honestly, not too fun. Part of the problem is I felt all my creations were the same...nothing new and well a little boring. That brings me to today's challenge for Flutter By Wednesdays - it's WHITE ON WHITE. The only color on the card can be from your main image and don't forget you must include a BUTTERFLY, FAIRY OR ANGEL. This is a challenge that I normally would shy away from...maybe not do much. Well not this time - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card!!

I think it helps when you have an adorable image to color. I print out digi's and keep them in a folder in hopes that when I have some time or need to relax I can pull out the folder and start coloring. What I've realized is I haven't done that nor have I used them.

Hello HedgieHugg by Tiddly Inks. Can you say CA-UTE?!?! But wait there's more...check out the whole card...

See what did I tell ya, AWESOME, right? I was so scared about just having a white card but after last week I decided I liked the textured look. So I added as much texture, in white of course, as I could. I used two different embossing folders (one for the background and one for the butterflies). I added sheer ribbon, pearls and a doilies for even more texture.

So whatcha think? I hope you will give this challenge a try. It's really a lot of fun! Stop by the FBW blog to link your NEW creation so we can all take a look. Remember to visit the other team members blogs to see what they came up with. Also, let's send out safe travel vibes to Danni and her family as they make their big move to Washington.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
