Happy Hump Day!! Wow do the weeks just fly by!! It seems like it was just the weekend and in two more days it will be a weekend again!! I can't believe it is Wednesday already. Wednesdays are not just an ordinary day but a Flutter By Day!! Today is Flutter by Wednesday and time for yet another challenge! Today's Flutter By Challenge is open but YOU MUST USE A BUTTERFLY OR FAIRY ON IT. The guest designer this week is Mary Giemza. She blows me away with her awesome coloring and details on her cards of projects. Our featured team member is Christine. Christine is a newer team member but her cards or projects are always beautiful and she is always there to leave an encouraging word or sweet comment. Such a sweetheart! Please click on over to their blogs and leave them some love.

Here is my entry for this weeks challenge.
I used one of my Elizabeth Bell images and sentiments from the Whiff of Joy summer kit. The papers are from a retired line of paper from SU called Afternoon Tea. I sometimes feel like I get into a rut with my colors so I decided to go out side of the box and use this green and groovy guava mix. I incorporated the OCCC challenge hosted by Jennifer Meyer to use border punches. My card uses border punches on the side, picket fence and all the corners. I created my own ribbon roses. They are so unique and add so much detail to the card.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Whiff of Joy Summer Kit
Accessories: ribbon, pearls, EK Success Border Punch, MS Picket Fence punch, MS Butterfly punch, Label 4 nestabilities
Paper: Afternoon Tea DP, Chocolate Chip and Groovy Guava, Watercolor Paper

If you should create a card with a butterfly or fairy on it, please link your DIRECT link to Mr. Linky here. If you upload your card or project to PCP or SC, please use the keyword FBW.
