My First Flutter By Wednesday!!!

It's my very first Wednesday with the Flutter By team, and I am sooooo excited! My sketch is based very loosely on Sketch 63 from Patter Cross's Triple the Sketch blog - but remember I said very loosely, lol!

My card base is Purely Pomegranate, and my main layer is Gable Green. I sanded it with a sanding block, to give it a nice texture, then stamped off the Sanded background once before stamping it on there.

Next I added my three panels of dp, and I have forgotten what kind it is! I put white dots around the edges with my gel pen. I used grungeboard letters and butterflies last - they are all painted with Hottie Pink Shimmerz Blingz.

This week's challenge was to use ribbons and buttons. So I added a square peralescent white button, and a pink ribbon edged in green to finish it off. What do you think?

I got my grungeboard at Pez-A-Doodle Designs - she has an excellent selection over there! You should check it out - you can even get it by the sheet!

O.K. Taylor I am back again today to welcome you to another team!!! LOL!!!!

It was wierd the other day when I got e-mails back to back from Danni and Jess saying that Kimmie was leaving the teams FBW and MTT, and then got back to back e-mails saying you were joining the teams FBW and MTT!!! LOL!!!!

I think I would be the only one that got both those e-mails but it was funny when I did!!!

Your first every Flutter By Wednesday Card turned out great and I love the colors you choose to use, and the Chipboard is great too!!!

Love this!!!!
