FBW #185 - BRIGHT Colors


Happy Wednesday to you! I'm back with a card for Flutter By Wednesday. We have a fun challenge...it's time to get rid of the winter blues by using BRIGHT COLORS - along with a butterfly, fairy or angel.

I must say here in Kansas we haven't seen much of the Winter weather yet. I mean the temperatures have been in the 50's and we still haven't seen any snow! I'm sure now since I've said that we'll get some, lol!

For my card I totally CASED it...I have been trying to organize my room and start fresh. So I was focusing my "extra" time (what little it is) to that. Therefore, I wanted something quick and pretty so I turned to Pinterest. Yes, I'm an avid Pinner...totally LOVE it! Want to follow me or see my boards...go here.

The card I pinned was this:


So using my supplies I came up with this card:

I just got a new die to make that awesome flower...plus my sister and mom got me a ton of wool felt so I had to use it!! Totally LOVE this card and I know that it will definitely cheer someone up!

I hope you will join us and play along. Grab those bright colors and a fairy, butterfly or angel and show us your creation! You can find all the details on the Flutter By Wednesday blog.

Thanks for stopping by!
