Retro Butterfly

This week's challenge at Flutterby Wednesday is an OPEN one - just make sure you have a butterfly or fairy on your creation!

My background was created by layering post-it notes and sponging the regal rose color, then removing a few and sponging the bashful blue color, then finally removing the last post-it notes and sponging apricot appeal in the remaining white areas.  The butterfly is sparkly embossed from SU!'s retired Wonderful Wings, colored to match and popped up in front.

Winter White

Flutterby Wednesday is looking for Winter White creations with your fairy or butterfly this week.  Your image may be colored - but everything else should be WHITE!

I used a Beautiful Butterflies die from Papertrey Ink to cut out a 'negative space' butterfly.  I backed it with a piece of shimmery white cardstock and filled in the body with gems.  The sentiment is from PTI's Beautiful Butterflies stamp set.  Getting all those little gems to underline it in a more or less straight line, probably was the hardest part of this card!  {lol}

Blossom Word Block

Flutterby Wednesday has an Open Challenge this week - anything goes as long as there is a butterfly or fairy on your creation!  We also would like to welcome Bugaboo Digi Stamps as this month's sponsor.  One lucky stamper will win 7 digis as a prize for fluttering along with us this week.  

I love the new Blossom Word Block digi released this month at Bugaboo.  The flower and leaves are colored twice, with the second set cut out and popped up.  And I promise that ribbon matches better in real life - not sure why it looks so dull in the photo.  :)

Something New at Flutterby Wednesday

We're kicking off the New Year at Flutterby Wednesday with a challenge of "In with the New".   You can use something new on your creation or make it a "new" theme such as "new baby", "new house", etc.  Don't forget to have a butterfly or fairy on your project too!

I must have been a very good girl last year b/c I got a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas! {yay! thanks Mom!}  It's going to be so much fun learning how to use it.  I found this darling butterfly card template in the Silhouette America on-line store and it's the very first thing I cut out with my new machine.  

I ran the white panel through my xyron to cover it with adhesive.  That made it super easy to stick behind the cut-out frame on the front of my card and then cover the rest in glitter for some lots of sparkly goodness!
