Flutter By #57 meets Creative Inspiration

Wednesday is upon us once again and that is us half way through yet another week, how time flies when we have fun! Wednesday´s always bring Flutter By and this week's challenge is an easy one. Use a quote or sentiment on your creation along with a butterfly or fairy. I am honoured to be the featured team member this week and I have used the sketch designed by Maxine at Creative Inspiration, the minute I saw this sketch I knew it was for me and will use this many times over.



I inked up my Guardian Angel by WOJ for the first time and ooh I love her, can´t believe I have kept her hidden since Harrogate. She is coloured with my Prisma´s and Glamour Dust to her beautiful wings. Loving my retro punch these days with the roses , flourish is a die cut, ribbon and papers from stash.
I'd love to see what you create!! Just leave a direct link in Mister Linky to your creation and if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword FBW. Can't wait to see all the wonderful flutter by's!
