FBW#116 A Little Bit of Whimsy

Hello Flutter By fans...back this week with a fun card and even more fun images!! We have a sponsor this week...Whimsy Stamps! We were treated to some amazing images, and I just fell in love with this precious little one. Isn't she a cutie? I'm still trying to find just the right combination for African-American skin and hair. The skin is getting better...the hair...I'm not so sure of, but it's a work in progress! Any suggestions of Copic color combos for either would be greatly appreciated.

There is another component to the challenge...use your favorite color. Well, that was a tricky one. I have a favorite color (purple), but I have a favorite crafting color (pink), so I went with the crafting color!! Tap into your inner favorite color and join us this week. Upload HERE so we can come and admire your work! Thanks for joining us this week!
