All Things Beautiful


Flutterby Wednesday - FBW185 Bright Colors
Just Us Girls - JUGS118 Sketch
Our Daily Bread DesignsODBDSLC91 New & Old


This week at Flutterby Wednesday we are fighting the Winter Blahs with bright colors!   Just remember to include a butterfly, fairy or angel on your creation too!  {wink}

I just received my first ever order from Our Daily Bread Designs and absolutely {love} their stamps!  Deeply-etched, purple rubber stamps, pre-cut and mounted on cling cushion for you - and they even included a chocolate bar {yum!}  It's no secret that I love making butterfly cards and they have some fabulous butterfly stamps in their store. 


I inked up the Grunge Butterfly Background with my brayer and Spectrum Kaleidacolor ink pad.  Then I rock-n-rolled the solid image from 2-Step Butterflies  and stamped a saying from the Faith set over it.  


Following the sketch from this week's JUGS challenge made putting this card together a snap!  Add some glitter, ribbon and bling  from my {old} stash to my {new} stamps and I've got a card that I can't wait to share!  


Thanks for fluttering by with a visit today.  I hope to see lots of your bright creations in the Flutterby Wednesday challenge this week!
