Flutter By Wednesday #66

Welcome to another Flutter By Wednesday!! I'm so happy you stopped by!

I can not bring to words how happy I am to see my little ol' challenge finally take flight like it has. Thanks so much to my amazing Flutter By Team and to all of you who stop by and also play along. I truly appreciate it and I LOVE seeing all those fluttering creations!

The challenge this week is brought to you by team member, Cathy. Her challenge is to use the colors pink and brown with your butterfly or fairy. I'd love to see your creations! Leave a direct link to your creation in Mister Linky, (I reserve the right to remove any links not appropriate or linked to blogs vs. entries.) If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use the keyword, FBW. Can't wait to see all those fun flutter by creations!

I also wanted to announce that Michelle is now our team leader. Next month Sam should be home on his 2 week R&R and I'm not sure exactly what we're doing so I wanted to have someone to oversee the challenge...just in case. Thanks to Michelle for taking on this new title
and all it entails!!

Don't forget to stop by all the team members sites to see their fluttering creations! Links are on my sidebar! Nicola was unable to get her creation done this week as she has a family emergency to tend to, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers!

I had a hard time choosing what to create my card with this week...so many fun fluttering stamps! Here's what I ended up with~ hope you like it!
I tried something new (for me) on her skirt. I stamped it two extra times on white cardstock and then adhered it before adding the last designer paper piece. I really like the way
it added dimension to it. I know others do this alot but first time for me trying it.




Supplies:
card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
stamps: Eloise Greengrass,
paper: Neenah Solar White, Basic Grey Bittersweet, sparkle cardstock
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
others: copics, gold glimmer shimmerz, CM cutting system, SU Button Bouquet and SU Button Latte, white scrappers floss (colored with copics),


Also, don't forget about the blog candy at Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart! Go enter if you haven't already!!

*Edit~ I don't know what has happened to Mister Linky, I've tried all I know to get it to appear and it's just not working today (Wednesday) so if you don't see it, please just leave a link in your comment to your wonderful creation, thanks!*

Second edit...I found Mister Linky..no need to "relink" if you've left your link in the comments unless you want to. Thanks and sorry about the problem! (also, I have to go into each FBW post to change part of the code for Mister Linky to appear....this week has been a challenge for me so I'm only going to do a few weeks back for the moment. Thanks

SMK said...

Such a cute card! Great job with the paper piecing :D I like using 3D foam to pop up mine, but I like how yours still looks flat but still has dimensionality! I'm gonna have to try that idea :) And yayyyy for R&R! Hooah! :D Doesn't matter what you end up doing, as long as you're together :) Thank you to your family for your service.
