Flower Fairy

What has inspired me today..........or should I say yesterday?

I had precut the image I used called "Flower Fairy" from Prairie Fairy Designs for a different card & I still had it at my fingertips, so I decided to actually do something with it.
I was up until 11:30pm last night, trying to perfect it, only to get up this morning & find myself unsatisfied with it. So I re-positioned my lil butterfly charm a bit differently & PRESTO CHANGO....'le perfect card'!

PS- I finally learned to use the crop option on my photo editing program!! YAY for me!!


(Sorry the second picture here kinda makes my fairy look at squished & awkward...my intent was to focus on my 3 layer buterfly made with my SU punch)




I have decided to enter my card into only a few challenges, compared to my last entry. Sometimes you hit the motherload with challenges, sometimes you don't! But that's ok, staying creative is what matters most.

The sketch is by the Cowgirls Sunday Challenge blog.

Speaking of that dang butterfly charm [that nagged me all night] which is a new purchase I JUST recieved in the mail yesterday, & my butterfly punch, I would like to enter this into the Pollycraft Mondays Challenge of 'let's have a sing-song', as this card instantly made me think of the song 'Butterfly' by Mariah Carey.

Surrounding my image with pink & gold ribbon was inspiration from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #2 of using ribbon as a border.  

At Lots to do- they want birds/wings.

And at A Spoon Full of Sugar they are letting the sunshine inspire you!


I hope you all have a great day. The sun is definitely shining here!!!
