Sapphire Flutterby

I jumped at the opportunity when Danni asked me to be a guest designer for her month long celebration. I discovered her blog about a year go from my friend, Kim. She had a ton of information on her blog, challenges, more online stores, and lots of other blogs to peak at. For the longest time, I would look at the Flutterby Challenge on Wed, but didn't really have a lot of butterfly stamps. Slowly, I would find myself looking at stamps of butterflies just to play along. Than she opened it to fairies as well! I was over joyed! I started playing along regularly, and it's one of my weekly favorite challenges!
This week's challenge keeping with the September theme was to use sapphires. I tried to pull in the color blue, blue flowers, and gems. For my card for her today, I used a stamp named just for her from Elisabeth Bell at Susana's store, which I received as blog candy from Danni. I used my TAC paper line called Lily Anna. I paper pieced her outfit, so her pants look like cords with the textured cardstock. She's colored with copics, covered her wings with angel wings shimmerz, and added a touch of stickles. I followed a layout on A Spoon Full of Sugar.

Other supplies: nesties, pacific blue, TAC sentiment, MS punch, Reflections gems, scrappers floss, primas.

Thanks for stopping by! Thanks, Danni, for asking me to do this! It meant a lot to me!

Wowee what an awesome card Anna, this stamp is on my wish list and I love your colouration of her. Your papers and flowers are beautiful and the picket fence and pricking are wonderful accents. Thank you so much for being our Guest Designet this week on Flutter By Wednesday.
Hugs,
