Good morning! This week our challenge at Flutter By Wednesday is being sponsored by Pattie's Creations! There is a prize of 3 digi's from Pattie's Creations store to be won so I hope you'll join in this week's challenge for your chance to win!!
Pattie provided several images for the DT to use, and I have used this little fairy. I chose to color her up as if she is dressed in a flower, with her bodice in green and her skirt in purple. As a general rule, I am NOT a purple kind of gal and seldom use that color at all. However, I wanted to try something different. I think it turned out quite stunning. I printed the image onto Neenah card and then cut it into an oval shape using one of my Spellbinder oval dies. I matted it using the Spellbinder scalloped oval die.
The cardstock and DP that I've used are by DCWV -- a pad I've had for quite a long time called Latte. The solid strip across the front is punched using an EK Success border punch. The ribbon is from my stash and doesn't have a brand on the roll, but I purchased it from Hancock Fabric. Under the bow is a small crochet doily from Michael's Crafts, and the pearls are by Recollection.
This week's challenge is everyone's favorite--Open Challenge! Anything goes as long as you have a butterfly or fairy on your creation!!
Hope you all have a great day. I'm out the door in just a little bit to have my annual boob smashing -- ugh -- and then to attend to a list of errands. As a side note, we've been having a most unusual week thus far weather wise. Sunday morning I woke to a dusting of snow on my porch and deck. Yesterday the temperatures reached spring-like 60's, followed by a heavy rain storm in the evening. This morning I find another dusting of snow on my deck. March can't seem to figure out if it wants to be a lion or a lamb -- crazzzy!
