FBW #155 - Carly's Sketch (and Happy Birthday to me)

What a glorious Wednesday - even though it's raining outside I don't care! It's my birthday and I'm celebrating. And by celebrating I mean having a day to myself to do whatever! First up a little crafting - ok maybe that's all I will do but that's ok since it's my birthday, lol!

For Flutter By Wednesday we have another wonderful sketch from Carly to use. Remember to have a butterfly, angel or fairy on your NEW creation.

Here is my card

I just got a new set Butterfly stamp set and die that I really wanted to use. I'm really enjoying the ability to create a cute card quickly. My birthday stash is a little low which is why I seem to be making so many lately. All the cardstock is from my scrap pile as nice to be able to use those up!

I hope you'll give Carly's sketch a's a lot of fun. Head over to the FBW blog to see all the details. Be sure to stop by the DT's blogs as well - I'm sure their creations will knock your socks off! Thanks so much for stopping by!


Stamps: Damask Backgrounder and Thinking of You from The Angel Company; Butterfly Dreams (PTI)Other: Leaf Die (Sizzix), Butterfly Die (PTI), IRock Rhinestones, Twine, VersaMark and Noir Black Palette Pad Ink Pad
