...Flutter By Wednesday Guest Designer Spot

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I was approached a couple of weeks ago by Danni Bindel about being her FBW Guest Designer for the first week of December, and I jumped at the opportunity! The only requirement for the FBW challenge was to make a card that showcased a fairy, butterfly, or angel...and once I saw the new December releases for The Greeting Farm, I knew which image I would be using as well! This is "Reading Fairy" from the amazingly talented Elizabeth Dulemba for The Greeting Farm. The image was stamped and embossed on watercolor paper, then colored with an Aquapainter and ink refills. The sentiment from Verve's set "Fairy Tales" was stamped on Blush Blossom Cardstock, then punched out using the Large Oval Punch. I also matted the sentiment panel with some Soft Suede Cardstock punched with the Scallop Oval Punch. The patterned papers were from the Bailey 12X12 Paper Pad from K & Company...aren't they spectacular?!? I embellished with some Soft Suede ribbon, sponged flowers, and brads.

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here tomorrow with another creation! Now head on over to the Flutter By Wednesday challenge, and join in the fun! Until later...
