FBW 62 Tilda is Rockin' the Wings!

Welcome!!! It's Flutter By Wednesday time!! This is the 62nd installment...whoa!! We have a guest designer this week, and she is Mary Giemza. Please visit her blog and leave her some love today! In addition, our featured team member this week is Christine. You will love her beautiful cards, so visit her as well!! Our challenge this week is actually an open one, so bring out your butterflies and fairies and have a flutter by day! When you finish, we would love to see your creations. Danni has Mr. Linky over on her blog...just give us a direct link to your card so that we may visit as well!
I was so excited to finally ink up this Tilda (she reminds me of my daughter who loves to put on butterfly wings!)...I can't believe that I have had her for as long as I have, and she hasn't seen ink. I also used a new stamp pad...Palette Noir...to ink her up with. It is a nice one, and OCD me now has Adirondack, Memento, and Palette in her collection. We were talking the other day about how weird it is to even bust out the SU black now...it really is purple! YIKES! Sorry, I love Stampin' Up, but the black is purple. Oh well, I digress. I think I'm just chatty today!
I really toned down the embellishments on this card because I really wanted the image and designer paper to do the talking! I had fun coloring this image, as usual. There is just something soothing about sitting at my desk and coloring. I was getting very frustrated with a certain child who just couldn't stop whining today, and coloring was all the therapy I needed! Luckily, she snapped out of it, and I kept my cool! I'm also counting down the days until I go to Copic certification...I don't think I've ever looked as forward to a class as I am this one! CAN'T WAIT!!!
