Flutter By Wednesday #173, The Greeting Farm, and Paper Make Up!

Today we have another double set of sponsors at Flutter By WednesdayThe Greeting Farm, and Paper Make Up Stamps, and it's another open challenge!  Just use a butterfly, angel or fairy on your card!   How fun has this month been?!  Danni's had a lot of wonderful giveaways for her birthday month long celebration at Flutter By Wednesday, hasn't she?  I've had this Mariposa paper from DCWV for too long. I think it's so pretty, I don't like to use it.  This particular sheet I think is way too pretty to cut up.  I mean, the design just lends itself to getting smacked on a piece of cardstock and calling it a day.  But that just wouldn't be any fun!  I did trim the paper, but decided I wanted to let the pretty design show off.  I simply colored my sweet image from The Greeting Farm, and placed her off a little on the card.  I did layer the pattern paper on some cardstock, but outside of my image, and flowers, my card is one layer on top.  I haven't done that in a long time!  But with paper as pretty as this, how can you cut it up?! 
Hope you'll join us!  Be sure to head to the Flutter By Wednesday blog to see what the other wonderful design team members made!

Flutter By Wednesday, #172 Susana's Custom Art

Today's another open challenge at Flutter By WednesdayDanni's got another great give away today for her birthday celebration month!  Our sponsor this week is Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, or SCACD for short.  I used a fun image from her store, Call Me by Victoria Case.  I thought about this after receiving this sweet image from Danni from a contest, but ya know, and this is random, but this younger generation of kids won't have to deal with a phone cord.  Most of them have grown up with cordless phones...or cell phones.  Crazy to think about that....or that I'm so flipping old I remember being a teenager dying to get my own phone line in my room, and being wrapped up in the kitchen by a phone cord.  Anyhow, totally random, I know!  But this image is darling, and Susana's store has some way cute stamps, so be sure to check her store out.  Make sure you swing by the Flutter By Wednesday blog to see what the other DT created and what Danni's got up her sleeves this week!  I followed the sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp, #73.

Flutter By Wednesday 171, Whimsy and Stars Studio.

More of our Sept. celebration happening today at Flutter By Wednesday.  We have two wonderful sponsors this week, Whimsy and Stars Studio by Mabelle RO, and Christy Croll's Tiddly Ink.  We have the famous Amy Young as a guest designer this week as well.  Lots of wonderfulness for you all! 

Today I used an image from Mabelle, this is from a TAC set, which sadly, TAC has shut it's doors.  But Mabelle created some of my favorite sets with them, so I had to color this cutie pie up.  I paper pieced her outfit.  I followed the sketch at Sunday Sketch.  Forgot to add the bottom circle part.  Got sidetracked I'm sure....gotta love ADHD moments!  Anyhow, it's another open challenge week!  I hope you all will play along.  Be sure to link your card back up at the Flutter By Wednesday blog, and to take a peak at what the other designers made!  Be sure to peak at Amy's blog too.  You'll be happy you did, if you've never been by there before.
