Flutter By Wednesday



Raise your hand if you know Danni. I would be surprised if you didn't!!! Danni was one of my very first regular followers when I started up my blog. I know that she makes the rounds leaving sweet comments all over the blogosphere. Her designs are uber cute, whimsical and she is a constant enabler. She even hosts her own challenge every week called Flutter By Wednesday. I was thrilled when she asked me to be the guest designer this week!!!! The challenge is to make a card that includes a fairy or butterfly plus flowers. That is so right up my alley! I colored my image in with Copics and guess what, I screwed up the hat. It was the last thing I had left to color and trust me - it wasn't pretty, LOL. Thankfully I had another image in my stash. I colored in the face and hat, cut it out and raised it with a dimensional. I couldn't let the extra flower go to waste, especially since the challenge includes flowers, so I added one to the hat. To finish it up, I added some sparkles with Stardust Stickles. Isn't she a doll? Oh see my sunshiny glow :) I saw this tutorial on Amy's blog and decided to give it a try. Love how it turned out! I followed sketch challenge 246 for the layout. Thanks for stopping by and be sure to play in the Flutter By Wednesday challenge this week. I can't wait to see your creations!!!
