Happy Hump Day! Is it really Wednesday already?!!!! The days are flying by!!!! Today I am excited to be sharing another Flutter By Wednesday creation. I just love cards with butterflies or fairies. They are just so Happy! Don't you think?

This week my DT sister Cathy challenged us to use pink and brown on our creation. Not at all difficult for me as I just love this color combo!!! I used this months new releases from Our Daily Bread Designs- Let Us Begin and Mother Teresa and this weeks Mojo 95 for the layout. I just love the quote. How true it is! The dp is from the SEI- Chocolat collection, My butterfly was made using SU Butterfly Sizzix die and the DP from the Chocolat collection. Even the flower by the sentiment is paper pieced and adhered with dimensionals. Since the dp is embossed and glittered, I added glitter to the lotus as well. Many of the materials are available at ODBD. I have provided the links for anyone who is interested.

Stamps: Let Us Begin, Mother Teresa from Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper: SEI Chocolat, Bazzill Bitter Chocolate and Pink
Accessories: Sizzix Butterfly Die from SU, Spellbinders Large and Small Deckled Rectangles, Spellbinders Label One Die, Hero Arts Pearls (corners), Martha Stewart Pearls, EK Success Fleur De Lis Punch, Bosskut Flourish Die, Cuttlebug Vintange Die (for corners on the top).
