FBW100 100 Butterflies, 100 Challenges!

Today is the day!! Flutter By Wednesday turns 100!! Can you believe it? It is amazing all of the countless creations that have been made and inspired by Flutter By Wednesdays! I'm so honored to be part of a team of amazing women who absolutely blow me away each week with their creativity. Danni, our fearless leader has to be one of the most thoughtful and kind people I know, and Wednesday is my favorite day because of her!

In honor of this week's 100th challenge, we all made our creations with butterflies because that is how this wonderful challenge was born. Butterflies are truly God's way of reminding us that miracles do happen.

We all chose to use a wonderful template from Brenda Quintana (QBee's Butterfly Large Box Template) that was suggested by our fabulous teammate Karen Wilson. We have been secretly corresponding without Danni's knowledge, so we hope this will surprise her!!
We would love for you to join us...just link up your creation HERE, and don't forget to use a butterfly, fairy or angel on your creation.
This was a fun template to work with, and you will see that I have a lot of butterflies on here...well, 100 of them in fact. I had to go all out, didn't I? That was a lot of punching and cutting involved on this box, but it was all worth it. It's so springy, and I just needed the cheerfulness of the project! The butterflies poking out of the box are from a cute new set I bought from Woodware USA called Flutterbys (appropriately!). They have wonderful clear stamp sets!
Additional Challenges:
Paper Sundaes Challenge #8 - Color challenge (CTMH colors that I used the closest match) Rose Red, Certainly Celery, and Tempting Turquoise
Card Details:
Stamps: Flutterby Butterflies by Woodware USA
Paper: Regal Rose, Rose Red, Tempting Turquoise, and Certainly Celery CS by Stampin' Up
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Copic markers; Prima flowers; rhinestone stickers; wooden skewers; Martha Stewart ribbon; Martha Stewart Butterfly punch; QBee Large Butterfly box template

Wow Nancy you have celebrated in style and must have taken a very long time to create this stunning box. I love it and hope you don´t have sore palms after punching out 100 flutterbys, your floral detail is such a beautiful trim and I adore the flutterbys popping out.
