A Flutterby Hop with Bugaboo

It's time for the first Flutterby Wednesday Challenge of the New Year - Happy 2012, everyone! Thanks so much to all of you who played along in our December Challenge - we loved seeing your creations. {grin}  We want to welcome four new members to the Flutterby Design Team - Karen, Leanne, Lynette and Suzanne - you're going to be wow'd by their work! 

And to start off the new year with some fun inspiration for you, the Flutterby Team has put together a little blog hop for you.  You should have arrived here from the FBW Blog {you really need to check it out because there's a prize this week!}

We're starting off the year with an OPEN challenge - just remember to have a butterfly, fairy or angel on your creation.  {wink}  Our sponsor is Bugaboo Digi Stamps and I used their gorgeous Silhouette Butterfly on my card.  I couldn't resist printing it out in black and filling in all the details with bright colors.  I fussy cut it and pinched the wings a bit before taping it over another print of the butterfly on DP.  I totally {love} the dimension that creates!  And it might be hard to see in the photo - but I covered the white card base in dazzling diamonds glitter.  I totally {love} sparkle too! 

Thanks for fluttering my way today ~ I'm always happy for your visits!  Now it's time to hop-a-long to Karen's blog and see what delightful creation she has for you today.  There's also a complete Hop List on the FBW Blog, should you get lost along the way. 

Stamps: Silhouette Butterfly digi by Bugaboo Stamps
Ink: Printer
