Flutter By Wednesday - Butterflies

I decided to change it up a bit for today. My card today doesn't have any coloring on it - that's right there is stamping but I took a break from the 'ol Copics and Prismacolor Pencils. You know what? It feels good too - and I so {HEART} this card!

I guess I should step back and give you the details about the challenge this week! It's an OPEN one - but remember you MUST USE A BUTTERFLY, FAIRY or ANGEL on your card! It's only fair you follow the rules to be included in the challenge. And how do you do that? Just stop by the Flutter By Wednesday Blog and link your creation using Mr. Linky. While there check out what the guest designers have created - I'm sure you'll love them!

Now for my card - it was inspired by some cards I saw in the new edition of Stamp It! Also, I've seen so many creations with big bows and buttons that I knew I wanted to do that. I recently bought a retired TAC set (thinking it's Flutter By) that has a gorgeous butterfly in it. I knew I wanted to use that as well. So here's my card:

Don't you {heart} it? I know I do!! I decided to also put a little sparkle on the butterflies so I used my trusty Stardust Clear Gelly pen. Here's a close up of that

It's really hard to capture. I think you can click on the picture and it will enlarge and you should be able to see it better. I think the butterflies are so pretty that they didn't need any additional coloring. Love them the way they are - and love that I can whip this card out rather quickly!

Well I hope you enjoy my creation and decide to play along this week. Needing more inspiration? Check out the other DT members blogs (on right side of blog) - I'm sure they'll provide you some awesome inspiration!! Thanks so much for stopping by - have a terrific Wednesday!!
