A Little Time Left for Butterflies


It's Wednesday, and it is indeed a Flutter By Day!! We have an inspiration challenge for you this week, and it is a beautiful photograph. Please visit Danni's blog to see our featured dt member and our special guest designer this week. Our featured team member this week is Kim, and she is in a word, AWESOME! Sweet with her comments and expert with her abilities! Please visit her and give her some love! Our other surprise this week is our guest designer, Kerry Donovan-Casey. Her blog is truly an inspiration as are all of her creations.

When I first saw the picture for this week's challenge, I knew that I had to use this gorgeous stamp from Firecracker Designs by Pamela. It was just too perfect! I had wanted to have the butterfly land on the flower, but I couldn't find just the right butterfly to make that work, so I improvised (don't we all do that??). I love my Martha Stewart butterfly punch. I used Shimmerz on the flower, and I just had to get the right angle to show you exactly how much it shimmers. I'm afraid I lose a bit of the quality of the photograph, but you get the idea!

Thanks for playing along with our Flutter By Wednesday Challenge #56 this week...it's always a pleasure to share it with you. And, who doesn't have a little time left for butterflies?

I love the Shimmerz too. I like how it makes your pretty cone flower pop. :) Looks like a trip to the craft store is on my "to do" list to search for some! Thanks a bunch for visiting my blog. I always enjoy your smiling face. :)
