FBW102 - A bit of a Whimsical Butterfly

Welcome to this wacky Wednesday! It's Flutter By Wednesday, and this week's challenge is an open one--just don't forget the butterfly, fairy or angel on there! I decided to highlight my card from my stamp club swap. The theme for that was an inside out card. Well, I interpreted it as the inside should hold a little more stuff than normal. This card is a bit more scaled back than I usually do, but we all need to mix it up a bit! We would love to have you play along, so link up your creation HERE!

Be sure to visit my team members' blogs to see all of their creations:




I used two different sets...the butterflies are actually from a beautiful set from Woodware USA stamps, and the others are from a wonderful set called Butterfly Wishes by Jessica Deidrich for The Greeting Farm. The sentiment reads:

trying to capture a moment such as this
is like trying to catch a butterfly--
too fast to hold on to,
yet absolutely beautiful
and forever remembered...



Card Details:
Stamps: FlutterbyButterflies by Woodware USA; Butterfly Wishes by The Greeting Farm
Paper: Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo by Stampin' Up
Ink: same as paper
Accessories: SU scalloped circle punch; SU 1 3/8 inch circle punch; Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder; SU oval and scalloped oval punches

what a sweet card! i love the butterfly peeking through the window and then bam! all those butterflies on the inside - such an awesome look!

thanks for asking about the garage sale. it did end up snowing overnight - woke up sat. to about 3 inches of snow. Hubby said we would cancel -- but we went to my sis' anyway since she had to be completely moved out and we thought we'd help with that. We had 3 "pros" early in the morning and since we paid for an ad we decided we'd just see what happened. All in all - about 15 shoppers - all bought except for one and we made a couple hundred bucks. those who shopped, SHOPPED -- I think we were one of the few that actually opened up so it was good for us. We are going to do it again this weekend and see if we can get rid of the rest of the stuff.

you are so sweet to remember and ask. what a dear friend you are!
