FBW99 A little Pixie Dust

So sorry for the late post for this week's Flutter By Wednesday challenge! I think that the universe is just conspiring against me a bit for the last couple of days! We were away for 5 days, and I've had trouble getting my groove back, so to speak.

This week's Flutter By Wednesday challenge (FBW99) is an inspiration challenge. You can link it up HERE. Danni's favorite character is Tinkerbell, and we have this wonderful picture of her below as inspiration for this week's challenge! I was a bit liberal with my take on it, so I will explain where I'm coming from. I sometimes take inspiration challenges very literally, and at other times, my reasoning may seem somewhat obscure. I guess that is the way my mind works! When I look at this picture of Tinkerbell, I see the little mischievous, yet loyal with a big heart fairy that she is. I guess I imagine Enchanted Lily to be a bit like that. Let's face it, fairies are all of those things wrapped into one! I wanted to explain my card for a second reason also...I think sometimes we get intimidated by inspiration challenges! This just shows you that you can trust where your creativity takes you! Enjoy!

My card is also for this week's Paper Sundaes seventh challenge...I'm still trying to keep up with everyone!! It is a sketch challenge this week, and I know you will love it!! The sketch challenge is HERE.

Lovely! And I totally what you get about the inspiration thing. Sometimes it's literal and sometimes a bit obscure but for me it makes sense. I get it. I really love this.

Completely agree with you - glad you mentioned it about how we each gather something different from the photo and whatever it is we create is fine! That's call individualism and art!! Love your take and such a sweet card - fabulous job!!
