Pastel Fairy

This week at Flutter By Wednesday, we have a sketch for you to use. This sketch, created by our own DT member, Kathy Curry, is a great one with loads of potential. I think you will like it, so here it is:

Sketches are always great starting points in our card making. Once you decide the basic design, then picking papers, cutting the image and picking embellishments seem to fall into place much more quickly. For my card this week, I've used a A Day for Daisies image of this sweet little flower fairy comforting her caterpillar friend. If you've followed me for a while, you know that I really like ADFD fairies, but that I usually color them in deep, rich colors. This image, however, "spoke" pastels, so I have used soft pink and blue as my palette.

We are asking,as usual, for you to use either fairies or butterflies on your card, but also to use Kathy's sketch. Stop by the Flutter By Wednesday blog and have a look at the inspiration cards shared by the DT members, and if you have time, stop by their blogs and leave them a little love. We enjoy your visits as much as we enjoy visiting you.

Happy fluttering!
