FBW154 Anything But a Card!!


Our challenge this week at Flutter By Wednesday is Anything But a Card. If you would like to play along with us this week, please visit HERE for more information. Also, the winner of the Paper Shelter images is listed on the challenge blog!

Ok, I was sure that this would look differently. I'm a firm believer in showcasing just about everything...the good, the bad, and the ugly. Well, this one missed the mark I had set for it, but I'm going to keep it. Let me tell you what I was thinking!

The black paper is the scratch magic paper, and I bought a pack of bookmarks to make and assemble. I had several butterflies that were left over from a shaving cream activity on glossy paper, and I chose three. From there, I decided to use the wooden tool to make the loopy lines for the butterflies. The first looked great, and I added the other two. Well, I thought something was missing, so I decided to add hearts.

Ever get to the point where you have just added too much, and you can't undo it? This is one of those instances! So, that is my crafting journey and faux pas for the day! I hope you will forgive me, but I thought sometimes it is important to share your process! Have an awesome day!

hehe, love your description! Sometimes I don't know when to quit either and this scratch-off paper is so addicting to keep scratching it! BUT - I totally love the added hearts, so you have nothing to worry about here. :) It's perfect!
