Mike, Mike, Mike, what day is it?


It's hummmppp daaayyy! OK, I have to admit that I really {heart} that commercial, and I just couldn't resist using part of it. (I apologize to those of you who may not have seen the commercial on television or You-tube.) Today, being Wednesday, means it is time for another Flutter By Wednesday challenge. This week we'd like you to add your favorite embellishments -- ribbon, flowers, charms, twine, die cuts, gems, glitter, stickers -- whatever you consider your favorite (please tell us what it is). Of course, as always, you must use a butterfly or fairy somewhere on your card.

This week I'm featuring the sister of my little fairy from last week. Notice the (chubby) family resemblence (smile)? This cutie is also A Day for Daisies image which I've printed onto X-Press It brand card and colored with Copic markers. My favorite embellishments are a toss up between ribbons, flowers and pearls/gems, so I've use all three on this card.

The card base is white. The DPs are from my stash (three different brands), and I've used green card for my matting. The lacy oval die is by Marianne (CR1204 available from Dutch Paper Crafts), and as with last week's, I've cut the image into an oval using the out-of-the-box technique. I tied the sheer ribbon into a double bow and wrapped the stem (wire) of the purple rose around the middle. The leaf mini flourish behind the bow/rose is from Cheery Lynn Designs (B117S, also available from Dutch Paper Crafts). The pearls at the top of the card are from Recollections (Michael's Crafts).

I hope my little card will inspire you to join us this week in our Flutter By Wednesday challenge. We so enjoy seeing the beautiful work all of you do. Please take a few minutes and hop over to see what my fellow teammates have shared. Remember, if we get over 100 entries, there will be a nice prize for some lucky participant.

Happy crafting!
