Flutter By Wednesday #173

Hey everyone!  This week’s Flutter By Wednesday Challenge is open, just remember your butterfly, fairy or angel.  We also have 2 wonderful sponsors this week, The Greeting Farm and Paper Makeup Stamps!

I had a little mishap with my card this week, I LOST it!  It was sitting on my desk waiting for me to take a picture and then it just up and disappeared!  So at the last minute I had to start again.  I decided to do a CAS card, totally not my normal style at all!  I {heart} my layers but I love how this one turned out!

Paper: Bazzill  Stamp: Your Next Stamp sentiment  Ink: VersaFine  Accessories: Pearls, Cuttlebug butterfly die and embossing folder, MFT butterfly trio Dienamics.

I’ll be back in a few with this week’s YNS Challenge, until then have a good day!
