We would love for you to play along. Just create a card or project using the above photo as your inspiration and be sure it has a fairy or butterfly on it, then upload your direct link to Mr. Linky here. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use the keyword FBW so we can see all the creations in one place. The inspiration challenge is optional, as always, so if it is not your thing, just create a card or project with a fairy or butterfly on it.
The guest designer this week is Kerry Donovan-Casey from Three Clover Designs. She is so talented and has a wonderful blog full of inspiration! You can see her creation on her blog or as well as on Danni's blog. Please take a minute to visit her creative blog and leave her some love.

And now for my card....I was ins[pired by the pinkish purple flowers in Danni's photo and knew the minute I saw Danni's photo that SU's Nature Collage would be the perfect image for me. I used this week's Mojo 85 sketch challenge for my layout. The image was stamped on watercolor paper and then watercolored with reinkers and SU markers. The butterfly and flower were cut out, gold embossed in spots, and layered with dimensional for a 3D Look. Although it is hard to see in the photo, the whole image panel was spritzed with pearl glimmermist. It really shimmers in real life!!! I had fun playing with my sewing machine and sewing a decorative border along the edges with gold metallic thread. The paper is from K and Co. Que Sera Lera and Brenda Walton. I think the purple and gold together make it look so royal. Upon completion, I couldn't help but add the cute little gold butterfly to my ribbon.
Stamps: SU Nature's Collage
Paper: K&Co. Que Sera Lera, Brenda Walton, Bitter Chocolate and Orchid Opulence textured CS, Watercolor paper
