FBW #200- The last challenge

Before I get to today’s post I have some FUN news!! Today is release day at SCACD!! Being released today are some of the sweetest little Peeker’s from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD and also re-introducing The Guardian Angels from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD with an awesome new angel! Be sure to head on over to SCACD and order yours today!!! and then mark your calendars for an inspirational blog hop on Friday to showcase these amazing stamps!!! For our International friends, Quixotic Paperie will have these stamps too!

The day is here, Challenge #200 on my Flutter By Wednesday Challenge. A very bittersweet day for me as I am so proud of my accomplishment to get to 200 challenges but also a bit sad as it’s the last challenge. I am content with my decision to close the challenge but it’s still like saying goodbye to an old friend.

I would love to see LOTS of entries for our last and final challenge so I hope you’ll head on over to the FBW blog and see how you can play along. Be sure to visit my Flutter By Team for lots of inspiration too--links are on my sidebar.

Before I get to my card, I want to send out a huge THANK YOU to all my Flutter By Team Members, present and past, to all the sponsors and all the participants of FBW through the years--you all helped me achieve my dream of a successful challenge!

This week we have a fabulous sketch designed by the talented Jen Shults--a former Flutter By Team member. Be sure to stop on over to her blog and leave her some love too!!

Here’s the sketch~

Here’s what I came up with~ can you believe no coloring? In case you can’t read the sentiment it says: Trying to capture a moment such as this is like trying to catch a butterfly- too fast to hold on to, yet absolutely beautiful and forever remembered…

Beautiful card from a beautiful woman!
I can't believe you've reached 200 challenges already! It just seems like yesterday that you asked me to be part of the team...that was over 100 challenges ago!
Best of luck in all you do, Dani!
