Happy Hump Day!! I hope you have all been having a great week. I know I have. I have been very busy creating. I just found out my mom and dad are coming first thing in the morning tomorrow for a few days! I am so excited to have some time to spend with them but that also means that I won't have any more time to create while they are here. So I have to get busy again today! I just received my new Our Daily Bread Designs sets for August and I can't wait to share them with you! Your going to love them!! Coming soon!!

Today is Flutter By Wednesday and it is time for a new challenge. Today's challenge is hosted by my ever so talented and sweet dt sister, Heather. Heather gave us quite the challenge this week. We were to create a scene and use little to no designer paper! I decided to use my Path of Life stampset from Our Daily Bread Designs! I had used the verses in this set before but never the image. It is such a beautiful scene that I couldn't resist. I used prisma color pencils and gamsol to color the image. I framed the image with my Spellbinders Classic frame and added spring, dark pink, light pink and ivory flower soft for dimension and color. The butterflies were created with the Martha Stewart Classic Butterfly punch. The green background is embossed with my textile Cuttlebug embossing folder.
Card Recipe:
Paper: Black green and white CS
I hope you enjoyed today's card and that you are inspired to create a scenic project or card with a fairy or butterfly (with little to no dp) on it. For more inspiration, visit my ever so talented dt sisters: Ann, Ashley, Cassie, Danni, Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Kim, Michelle, Nancy, Nicola, Stef, Taylor, Lelia, and Christine for their awesome takes on the challenge. If you should join us for the fun, please leave a direct link to Mr. Linky here. If you should upload your creation to SC or PCP, please use the keyword FBW.
Thanks for stopping by today. If you do stop by please leave a comment so I can in turn return the favor and visit your blog as well! Thanks for your wonderful comments. Have a blessed day!
