Flutter By Wednesday #48

Happy Flutter By Wednesday!!

First I want to say thank you so much to my Flutter By Team for all their gorgeous cards each week. Next a big thank you to YOU!! I am so happy that more and more people are playing along and having fun! In the next few weeks I'll have some blog candy to help say thank you.

This week's challenge was to use a butterfly and flowers in your creations. I will also start putting the challenges over on the left side under my Flutter By blog button in case you forget. The challenges are strictly optional though, just to add a little fun each week!

Our featured Flutter By Team Member is Cathy this week!! Be sure to stop by and give her some love for her wonderful creation!!

Also be sure to check out the other team members blogs for their creations and leave them some love too!!


We also have a special guest designer this week. Many of you know her and love her work as I do. She has been a true inspiration to me and I simply adore her! Please stop by her blog and leave her some love too! Who is it? None other than Maria Bell from Stampin' Inspirations!!
I'm also so excited that she has kindly agreed to let me use some of her fabulous sketches for challenges on Flutter By Wednesday's too!!
Here's her wonderful creation, a gift bag topper!! Can we say WOW!!!

A couple of tough acts to follow but here's my card for the week. Again, a simpler card so I can use it for the card ministry. But I just love the way it turned out.

card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Serendipity Butterfly Bush (small), TAC Squiggle Ladybugs-sentiment
paper: TAC ultrasmooth white cardstock , Basic Grey Euphoria
ink: Memento Tuxedo Black , VersaMagic Spring Pansy
others: prismacolors, OMS,
nestabilities, SU scallop border punch, diamond stickles

Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to see your Flutter By creations!! If you create a card or project with a butterfly, just leave a comment and a link on this post. Or if you upload to SCS or PCP, please use the keyword FBW so I can find your creation. Can't wait to see all those Flutter By's!

For those of you who work ahead, the challenge for next week is to use a butterfly and buttons on your card. Team member Kimmie suggested this challenge and it also reminds me so much of the talented Tammi! So get out those butterflies and buttons!!

You must be a night owl like me. I always check my favorite blogs before I go to bed and almost every night, you have just posted.

I love your work and watch waiting to see what you come up with next. I'm going out of town this weekend but I hope to get in on your challenge this week. It won't be hard for me because I almost always have a butterfly of some sort on my cards!!!

Kristie said...

Your butterfly bush is so pretty!

kdsmalley said...

Love all of them. Great work everyone. And Danni, there is nothing simple about your card, unless you use the words 'simple elegance' Because that is what it is, elegant.
Cathy's card is also very pretty, love it. And Maria's gift bag topper is fantastic.
Great work everyone.

Michelle said...

Sorry about the headache - I hope you get to feeling better soon! I miss "talking" to you! Hopefully things will be normal for me soon so we can have a phone chat! Next week, Abby is on Spring Break so I'm pretty sure I'll need a break as well!

LOVE your flutter by card! The paper is gorgeous and your coloring is fantastic! You are one talented lady!!

Thanks for the Flutter By opportunity - it's a blast being a part of your team!!
