FBW #199 - Going Back to the Beginning!

Happy Wednesday to you! Thanks for joining me today for another Flutter By Wednesday. We've got a fun challenge this week. Since we are approaching the 200th challenge we are going back to the beginning. We are CASEing Danni's VERY FIRST FLUTTER BY CARD! Check it out:

When I looked at this card, I saw the gorgeous butterfly and the color blue. I knew that the butterfly had to be the focal point. I went looking for a sketch and found this one from Taylored Expressions:

Then I grabbed a new stamp that I got from CTMH and went to town. I used a Kaleidacolor pad in different shades of blue and made a monochromatic card.

I hope you'll join us this week. Remember the challenge is to CASE Danni's card and remember to use a butterfly, fairy or angel on it. Go check out all the details on the Flutter By Wednesday Blog.

I also have some sad week will be FBW's 200th challenge and it will also be our last one. I know this was a difficult choice for Danni as this is her baby. We are very thankful for all Danni has done for us and I will be forever grateful for being a part of this wonderful team!

Thanks for stopping by!
