Fluttery By Wednesday #219

This is a busy week as everyone tries to tie up those last minute details to get ready for Christmas. Only five more days until Christmas Eve -- where has the time gone? Except for doing a little baking, I think I'm ready. How about you?

Because we know this is a busy time, we appreciate all of you who have been able to join our Flutter By Wednesday challenges. We've tried to keep them simple for you this month by having an "open" theme all month long. This means that you could/can do anything you want as long as you add a butterfly or fairy somewhere on your card, and that is the case again this week. No theme, no sketch, no color requirements -- just do your own thing and add a butterfly or fairy!

Despite being a wee bit tired of making Christmas cards and ready to "move on," my FBW card for this week is a darling little Christmas fairy image. I've colored her up using my Copic marker. I printed this image twice, coloring the fairy once and fussy cutting her out. I then colored the baubles on the second image (which I left intact and cut into a rectangle). I then glued my fairy to the flat panel, leaving one wing (the right one as you look at the card) dimensional by using a small foam dot under it.

My card base is red, but then I used non-traditional pastel colors for the rest of the card. My background and strip DP are from a small 6x6" pad by MME called Merry/Joyex/Alegre. My ribbon and bow is Ofray, and my pink beads are by Recollection. You can't tell, but I did use Stickles on her little wings.

I hope you will be able to carve out a little creative time for yourself during this busy, last minute count-down time and will join us in this week's challenge. If you visit the Flutter By Wednesday blog, you will notice that a number of our DT members have had to take this week off, but the ones who were able to participate have created some beautiful cards. Go take a look.
