This week at Flutterby Wednesday we have an open challenge, just remember to use your butterfly, fairy or angel!  And there is an optional challenge to use the latest Sketch by Carly, as I have done for my card!  {grin}  Plus, Carly is offering some blog candy with her sketch this week, so be sure to link your card up there too!

I have used Moody for Flowers by Paper Makeup Stamps and one of the sayings from Celebration Sentiments.  She is colored with Copic Markers and I used yellows for her flowers to go with the Copic Creations challenge that PMS is sponsoring this month.  {wink}  I cut out my image with the Reverse Wonky Rectangles nestie, then cut off the bottom portion with the saying and slid it over to fit the sketch layout better. 

I used the Snow Cap embossing folder by Sizzix for the texture panels and punched flowers that I clipped and crinkled a bit to give them a better petal look.  I like how my little blooms turned out and that fits another challenge that PMS is sponsoring starting today over at Fab 'n' Funky! {wink,wink}  And I love how the threaded ribbon matches the squares from the sketch.  {giggle}

Before you go, make sure you stop by my fellow fluttery team member Michelle McDaniel's blog and wish her a very happy birthday today!  {cheer!}  And after that check out the PMS blog for all the details on a Design Team Call and Friday Freebies
