Flutter By Wednesday # 53

It is Wednesday once more and time for another challenge over with FBW and the challenge this week is to create a card with a butterfly or a fairy and just for clarification, we decided any person with wings can qualify as a fairy PLUS use punches or diecuts on your creation! We´d love to see your creations! Just enter the direct link to your creation in Mister Linky. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use the keyword, FBW. Please make sure your creation has a fairy or butterfly on it...We've seen some awesome cards linked but no fluttering on them! Thanks.



I decided to use punches as the main theme of my card ... borders, tags and flowers! Ribbons, pearls and gem from stock along with the decoupaged butterfly peeloffs.


Wow, thank you Joey, Pascale and Joanne for this beautiful award I am honoured to receive this from you three very talented ladies. Please do stop by their blogs and leave some love ... better make a cuppa before you go though as you will spend a very happy time browsing their wonderful blogs.



As this is a new Award I shall abide by the rules and pass it onto five other bloggers ... what a difficult decision this is because there are so many wonderful blogs out there but rules are rules:
Danni, Sharon, Stef, Susie and Sheila
