Happy Hump Day! I Can't believe it is Wednesday already and time for yet another Flutter By Wednesday. Where does the time go!! I can't believe in a few more days it will be August!!!


Today's Flutter By Wednesday challenge is hosted by my dear friend and dt sister, Ann. This week's challenge is to not use any designer paper on your card or project. This is indeed a challenge for me since I love designer paper. I decided, however, to really think out of the box or my comfort zone and use some earth tones. I love my soft subtles and rich regals most of all. I am not sure if I like how my card turned out or not yet. I used my Inpired by Nature set and the butterfly is created with the Butterfly Sizzix die on Old Olive. I created my own background dp with a weathered background stamp from SU for the Dare to Get Dirty DTGD09gbedwright to create your own DP. The flower is glittered on the edges just to create a shimmer.
I hope this card somehow inspires to create your own creation using this challenge. If this does not maybe my dt sister's awesome creations will!! Please visit Ann, Cassie, Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Kim, Michelle, Taylor, Nancy, Nicola, Christine, Lelia, Danni and Stef for their FBW creations.
Should you create a project with a butterfly or fairy and no designer paper, please leave a direct link here. If you upload to SC or PCP, please use the keyword FBW so we can see your creations in one place.
Thanks for stopping by today and as always thanks for your wonderful comments!
