Flutter By Wednesday #227

Welcome to another Flutter By Wednesday Challenge! I'm so happy you fluttered in!!

This week our challenge is a popular one throughout blogland--Hearts!! Be sure to have a butterfly or fairy on your creations too!!

This week my card is a CASE of a card made by Ann Schach. I know, as a designer, I am supposed to create my own designs and cards, but I have to confess that my  3-days per week part time job with Rome/Floyd County Parks and Recreation has temporarily turned into 5-days per week with longer hours due to personnel shortage and a hiring freeze, so my crafting time has been sorely limited. Caught in that time crunch, I saw Ann's card and ran with it. I did add my touches and made a few changes, but the basic concept is hers!

I have started with a white card base and added a layer of black with another layer of white. I then used Life Style Craft heart embossing folder and embossed a 3 x 3" piece of white which I also matted with the black. The little heart is a Joy Craft die. It is an open heart, and I hand cut a backing for it from red card. The butterflies are made using two Martha Stewart punches. I then added small pearls for the butterfly's body, and even smaller pearls (Recollections) to every other "hole" around the heart.

I hope I have inspired you enough to get into your craft room and try your hand at a card. Only one more day until Valentine's Day, so if you haven't created a card for your loved one/ones, this would be a quick one for you to try. There is room on the right side for a sentiment if you want to add one (I left one off because I like the crisp, clean look of this card and will put my sentiment inside). We'd so like it if you join us this week by sharing your art work with us at Flutter by Wednesday. Just remember to add a butterfly or fairy to your card!
