Happy Hump Day to you All! Today is Flutter By Wednesday! Woo hoo! Today's challenge was hosted by my dear dt sister Michelle. She challenged the team to use ribbons and buttons on our card or project along with a fairy or butterfly. My image is from the Whiff of Joy Summer Kit. I paper pieced most of the image and colored the hair and skin with copics. I just love the Elizabeth Bell images! She is such an awesome artist!! The dp I used is from the DCWV Girls Nursery Pack. This was another card I was unable to sew or paper pierce because of no electricity and very little light during the storms. With our storms and all the flooding (electric poles are pulling out of the ground because of the all the water) we have had a lot of power outages.
