FBW175 - Oh Scrap!

Our Fluttery challenge this week is to use our scraps, and I think I may have gotten a little carried away!! I have an entire box of just wonderful Basic Grey scraps. Well, I pulled them out and stuck them willy-nilly on a square piece of paper. From there, I took out my SU Sizzix die of butterflies and cut away. So, it gave the butterflies a crazy quilt kind of feel to them. For the antennae I grabbed my red ribbon scraps, and VOILA! The sentiment is from Woodware USA, and the rest of the paper is from Stampin' Up (Real Red, Night of Navy and their respective designer papers).

We have a guest designer this week at Flutter By Wednesday -- Barbara -- please pop on over to her blog and give her some love! If you would like to participate this week, please upload your scrappy creations HERE. Don't forget to include your butterfly, fairy or angel!

Thanks for stopping by!
