FBW150 Celebrate our Sesquicentennial!!

How is that for your big word of the day? How often do we get to use the word sesquicentennial? Woohoo! Flutter By Wednesday is celebrating their 150th challenge, and we have some amazing surprises for you! Check HERE for more exciting details!

Now, on to the "OOPS" section! Remember the old adage, "do as I say, not as I do"? Well, that would apply today! My brain doesn't seem to be working, and I didn't follow the challenge guidelines. Our challenge this week is to use soft pastel colors. Well, mine don't exactly look soft or pastel. I'm so sorry! Please, do as I say, not as I do!




Card Details:

Stamps: Pure Innocence by My Favorite Things; sentiment by Unity stamps

Paper: Sweet Pea DSP; Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, and white by SU

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Summer Sun for sponging

Accessories: Copic markers; rhinestone flourish; prima flowers; Nestabilities;

Cuttlebug embossing folder; SU oval and scalloped oval punches

Even if it's not pastel, it's adorable! You did such a great job coloring her. I love your flower "burst" at the top. Wonderful job with the sketch!
