Thanks and Thanks

Flutterby Wednesday - #229 Lots of Layers
Digi Makeover Challenge - DM077 Stripes
SCS Sketch Challenge - SC425
Our Daily Bread - #144 Black & Cream
Crafty Catz - Dies & Punches

It seems I'm always in need of more thank you cards!  I like this word art from Everyday Thanks at Paper Makeup Stamps.  Because it's a digi image, I could give it a little shadow effect in Word before printing it on some designer paper by Fancy Pants from their Country Boutique collection.  Actually, all the patterned paper on this card is from that same collection.

The Butterfly Border was cut with  a C.C. Designs Cutter die.  And of course I had to add lots of sparkle with some gems and my trusty stardust glitter pen!

I like using hearts to create butterfly wings.  These hearts have a neat stitched pattern around them from the Of the Heart dies by Lil' Inker Designs.

Fluttering with Stamp Fairy

It's the first Wednesday of the month which means Flutterby Wednesday has a sponsor this week - Stamp Fairy!  And it's super easy to play along with us for a chance at their generous $10 gift certificate because it's an OPEN challenge ~ Just have a butterfly or fairy on your creation and link up at Flutterby Wednesday!

I have used the adorable Molly Fairy on my card along with the freebie sentiment that you can find with her in the Stamp Fairy store.  

I colored both digis in and then sized and placed them together in a Word document.  You can add diffierent kinds of text boxes around your images in Word, so I chose one for the saying to make it look like Molly is sitting on a box.  Of course, I had to add some stickles and bling for the sparkle that you need in a magical birthday!  Oh - and I'm really liking these stitched die-cuts that you can find at Lil' Inker Designs.

Thanks for fluttering by!  There are lots more beautiful Stamp Fairy creations to admire by my teamies at Flutterby Wednesday - go take a peek!
