A Fluttery Celebration!

Flutterby Wednesday - FBW150 Soft Pastel Colors
Sparkle Creations - SCRSC38 Sketch
SCS Color Combo - CC318 So Pretty Pizzaz!

We are celebrating at Flutterby Wednesday!  Not only is this week the 150th FBW Challenge, but we also had a new record of over 200 participants a couple weeks ago - Woohoo!  So, we have a couple of fun prizes to give away {2 Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps} and {Anita Be Stampin Fairy Digi Collection}  Be sure to check out the Flutterby Wednesday blog for all the details on how to participate and be entered to win!  {wink}

This week's challenge is to use soft pastel colors with your butterfly, fairy or angel.  I embossed Charlotte with a Rose from Sparkle Creations on watercolor paper and shaded her in with an aquapainter and ink.  I ran the green panel through my xyron to cover it with adhesive, so I could attach my image panel to it and then coat the rest with dazzling diamonds glitter for lots of sparkle!  {grin}  Of course, the little pink butterfly needed the same treatment!

Thanks for fluttering by and I hope you'll play along with us at Flutterby Wednesday!

so very pretty! I love the embossed background, it's such a soft way to break up a plain white card base :)

This is so soft and sweet! I love your coloring of Charlotte and great thinking to incorporate that folder. I have that one and haven't used it yet.
