Happy Hump Day! Today is Flutter By Wednesday and Inky Impressions Challenge Day! So I could combine challenges for my creation, I decided to use the digital fairy image that Nicole offered as a freebie on the dt challenge blog.

This weeks challenge at Inky Impressions is "Paper Piecing". Make any type of creation following the challenge and an Inky Impressions image to play along. For those of you that may have missed the free digistamp that Nicole offered last week, you can find it here. This allows everyone to play along!! We can't wait to see all of your awesome paper pieced creations this week!

This week our Flutterby challenge is from team member, Cassie. She challenged us to CASE (copy and steal everything) from another flutter by team member's card. Please be sure to tell us in your post who you CASE'd. For my card, I cased my fabulously talented dt sister Ann. I kept her layout, dp, colors, and paper piecing technique but changed the image and put a butterfly in place of the sentiment.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Digital image from Inky Impressions
Paper: DCWV- Boys Nursery Pack, So Saffron, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Butterfly Sizzix die from SU, pearls, sheer blue ribbon, Vintage Corner die, Crystal Effects, glitter

The Flutterby team would love to see your creations! Leave a direct link to your creation in Mister Linky. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use the keyword, FBW. Can't wait to see those creations!

Should you create a card or creation for the Inky Impressions Challenge please leave a direct link here. For more inspiration on the Inky Impressions challenge, please visit my fabulously talented dt sisters:
For more inspiration for the Flutterby Wednesday Challenge (to case a card including a butterfly or fairy), see my magnificent and inspirational dt sisters:


Thank you for stopping by today!!! I hope you have a wonderful Flutterby Day!!

What a darling card, Chris. I love how you positioned her on that clothes pin. One of these days I'm determined to get in on one or both of these challenges. I just need to find a vendor who sells stampin' time. :)

Silly me. I followed the link for last week's Freebie, and the clothespin is part of the image. You just colored it so real-looking that I thought somehow it was an add-on of some sort. It's a darling image! Well done.
