To believe in fairies and butterflies...


This is the greatest gift! Who can resist two wondrous creatures such as these? Wouldn't we all love to have wings and flit about in the sunshine? Fairies and butterflies are both so ethereal and delicate...how can we resist them? Well, now the challenges for Flutter by Wednesdays can incorporate fairies as well! It just makes the possibilities endless! I incorporated Tink from the Greeting Farm and a beautiful little butterfly from DRS Designs. This was a fun card to make because I just adore coloring and especially coloring these images from The Greeting Farm.
