Flutter By Wednesday 180, Open Challenge.

Today we have a lot of fun stuff for you at Flutter By Wednesday!  Not only is it an open challenge, it's the start of a new design team member, Amanda.  Please give her a lovely welcome!

On top of a new team member, we have a great guest designer, Jessica, from The Whimsical Butterfly.  Be sure to check out what she created for Flutter By Wednesday today! 

You know you're limited on crafting time, when you're thinking challenges on all your projects!  I hope you can see my itty bitty butterflies on here.

Today's project for me was my daughter's birthday invite this year.  She's gonna be 12 later this month, and gasp....NO PINK!  Okay, seriously, the child has loved pink since she was a toddler!   Can we say Momma is having a hard time with her out growing pink!

I tried to make something a little more sassy and grown up.  I have to say Forever Young is by far one of my favorite cartridges.   I cut out my ladies at 3 inches.  I cut out a tag off a different cartridge, Bags, Tags and More.  They were cut at 4 inches.  I layered my clothing up with the layer feature.  Let me tell you, those were some tiny pieces.  Than I shadowed the girls, and the sentiment which was also off Forever Young.

I made them into bookmarks, and cut another tag out, which I added the birthday invite stuff to.  This way the girls could use the bookmark and the invite was still functional for them.  I even laminated them using My Story kit that I have and haven't used.  All in all, I think the invites are sassy!  Gabi seemed impressed, and hopefully her friends were too!

Be sure to see what the other design team members came up by peaking at the Flutter By Wednesday blog.
