My "Take Ten" Flutter By Challenge

I've long been a fan of the Take Ten magazines simply because I love the idea of making a beautiful card in ten minutes. Ever since discovering copic markers and other coloring mediums, I haven't really been able to make a true 10 minute card. To do an extra challenge for myself this week, I tried to make this card in 10 minutes. I succeeded!! And, the added bonus is that it is pretty, and I like it!!

Our Flutter By Wednesday challenge is an open one this week. All you need to do is use a butterfly and/or fairy on your card and let the creative juices flow! We have a fabulous guest designer this week, Sandra McLean, and she has a gorgeous blog! Please join us and link your creation HERE! You can also find all of my phenomenal Flutter By sisters' creations on the left sidebar...take a peek and leave them some love if you will!

Stamps: None
Paper: Lemonade by Basic Grey; Rich Razzleberry by Stampin' Up

Nancy, this is beautiful! I absolutely love that paper and of coarse I am a total sucker for anything butterfly! The JB challenge this week was to make a card with no stamping so this definitely fits the bill! Great job!
