FBW108 Flutter By Wednesday meets Meljen's Designs

Howdy, Flutter By Wednesday Fans!! How y'all doin'? Sorry, I couldn't help the drawl in my writing! Today we have a wonderful little surprise at Flutter By Wednesday...we have a sponsor. I tripped across the Meljen's Designs Etsy shop a few months ago, and I was hooked by the cuteness!! They have some amazing digital images, and I'm blown away by the detailing. Well, the team was treated to two images, and I just couldn't resist using both of them! So, I have two cards for you today! The above is using an adorable little fairy, and she was so big when I printed her out that I had to abandon my plan for a scalloped edge! Not a big deal because I love the bling even better! Make sure you hop on over to the Flutter By Blog...there may just be a chance for you to get your hands on a Meljen's Design prize!

This next card took a bit of a different slant for me also! I started with the image, and I knew I wanted to color it, but I also didn't want a white background. So, I printed the image first on white, second on the So Saffron. I colored the butterfly on white, cut it out (yes, I cut the small parts on the bottom), and I popped it up on the image on the So Saffron. Then, I highlighted the flying lines (is that what they are called?) with a blue Spica glitter pen. From there, I used the Nestability to cut out the image in yellow. I cut the next biggest size, and I turned it a bit. It is a simple layout, but the bling coupled with the two different borders and ribbon really helped to make it stand out. I love how the color combo came out!!
I would love for you to visit my team mates' creations...they are true masters of their craft. I love to see what they come up with each and every week!

Beautiful cards! You're so creative. I love the way you went with the round card with the fabulous bling for the fairy and printing the butterfly out twice on two colors of card stock is such a great idea.
