Flutter By Wednesday reaches 100

Today marks our 100th Challenge at Flutter By Wednesday and in honour of Danni, the creator and fantastic leader, we the DT are celebrating this wonderful event with something special. Danni asked us if we could all use a butterfly on our project this week to mark our 100th Challenge.
Our fabulous teamie Karen contacted the DT and suggested we all make Butterfly Boxes using a lovely template that was found on Brenda´s Blog , thank you Karen and Brenda, I really enjoyed making this.


After cutting and assembling my Butterfly Box I drew a butterfly free hand then ran this through the cuttlebug folder. Top butterfly is stamped onto acetate with stazon and decorated with Art Institute Glitter. The handle was made using MS Valentine punch and trimmed with ribbon. Floral and Pearl display are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This week´s challenge is an open one, just make sure you have a butterfly, fairy or angel on your project and upload to Mr. Linky and if you upload to SCS or PCP please use the keyword, FBW.
I do hope you will all help us honour Danni´s 100th and don´t forget to check out the DT, links on my sidebar, to see what they have created with this fabulous template.
