FBW199 Case-ing and Saying Goodbye

It's a cliche--"all good things must come to an end." A cliche, but it doesn't make it any less real! Today is the 199th challenge at Flutter By Wednesday, and next week, it will turn 200. Then, Danni is going to turn off the lights for the FBW challenge. What an amazing run it has had, and I'm so grateful to have been a part of it for so long. Danni gave me my first shot on a design team, and it has meant the world to me. She is an awesome team leader and an awesome person. I'm still in a bit of denial, and I'm sure that Wednesdays will feel funny without posting a Flutterby card, but we understand that it is time to move on! We hope that you will play along with us this week and next to go out with a bang. It's always nice to go out on top!

Our challenge this week is to case Danni's first challenge card, and you can find it HERE, along with more details about the end of an era! We hope to see you!

Stamps: Butterfly Beauties by Unity; sentiment by Woodware USA
Paper: Lemonade by Basic Grey; Purely Pomegranate by SU

Sweet, sweet card, Nancy, and sweet words too. I love how you've phrased things. :) Also love all the sparkle in your butterfly and the pretty flowers for its background. :)

Nancy this is so beautiful - I love the papers and colors you used. I so enjoyed getting to know you from FBW first and will miss you and the team very much. I think I will still need to post FBW cards on Wednesdays anyway!! Hugs, Harriet

Hi Nancy!! This is so pretty, especially all that glitter. I used the same embellishment on the side as well! I bet you're in a little denial - you've been with Danni for a long time!!! You're right though - it's great to go out on top!
