Flutter By Wednesday (2nd post today!)

I'm so excited to return to the Flutter By Wednesday team!! I love butterflies - so girlie!! I had a great time making this simple card, because I stamped a ton of butterflies and my daughter colored them for me while I worked on the card. Mom and daughter craft time is priceless!!

I stuck with an easy peasy tent topper card, and based my colors on the dp. The challenge this week was to use a sapphire blue on the card - and I don't think I quite got it -- oops! I was sure I had dew drops in a darker shade of blue, but when the card was finished and I went to get them out....nope! Only these sparkly blue skittles. I hope it is close enough!

My stamp is from the Lizzie Anne Designs set Cute as a Bug, and my flower embellie is by K & Company. I used stickles on the butterfly's antennae, and to go over the swirl/trail. It is so sparkly irl!

Be sure to check out the rest of the Flutter By girls to see what they've cooked up this week!!
