Happy Hump Day to you all! Today is both the Inky Impressions Challenge and Flutter By Wednesday Challenge. Since Flutter By Wednesday was an open challenge this week just requiring you to use a butterfly or fairy on your card, I thought it would be fun to combine the two. I am so excited to share my first creation with you as an Inspirational Inkette!! and include butterflies too!!!

Today's challenge at Inky Impressions is to create a tag card or use a tag on your card. EVERYONE can play along this week and be entered to win a $10 Gift Card to Inky Impressions Rubber Stamps!! since Nicole is generously offering a FREE DIGISTAMP for you to print out and color and use on your "TAG" card! Then you'll need to use Mr. Linky on the challenge blog to link your card. You won't want to miss this darling card or the opportunity to participate in this challenge. Can't wait to see your creations!!!!

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch since is seemed perfect for adding a tag.! I used the Lili's Chicks stamp but instead of adding the chicks, I decided to have Lili pointing to the sentiment: "Your Special". I was excited to be able to use my brand new ribbon and paper from SU (Thoroughly Modern) and some yummy paper that I bought while in Lancaster this summer (My Mind's Eye Penny Lane-Tiny Dancer Chasse Graceful Circles Paper). I colored my image in with prisma color pencils and gamsol.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Inky Impressions- Lili's Chicks
Paper: SU - Thoroughly Modern, MME Penny Lane
Tools: Spellbinders- Octagons, MS Butterfly punch, Swiss Dots Embossing folder, sewing machine, SU Tab punch
Embellishments: Hodgepodge hardware, Bermuda Bay Ribbon, pearls, craft hemp

For more inspiration for the Flutter By Wednesday challenge you may visit this week's Fabulously talented Guest Designer: Sandra McLean, as well as my dt sisters: Ann, Cassie, Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Kim, Danni, Nancy, Michelle, Nicola, Stef, Taylor, Lelia, and Christine. If you do create a project or card, remember to use a BUTTERFLY OR FAIRY and link it to Mr. Linky here on Danni's blog. Should you upload your creation to SCS or PCP, please use the keyword FBW so we can see all your creations in one place.

For more inspiration for the Inky Impressions Challenge please visit my fellow Inspirational Inkette Sisters: Tonya, Crystal, Jenn, Kristen, Michele, Kristine and Jacqui. You won't to miss a chance to win a $10 gift card. So...get creating!! Just create a tag card or a card with a tag with an Inky Impressions and link it to Mr. Linky here. You don't have an inky impressions stamp? That's o.k. Nicole has kindly offered the sweetest ever free digi stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I so appreciate your wonderful comments and inspiration! I hope this post somehow inspires you to create!
