Exciting News!

I've had a secret that I can finally share with you today, my friend Danni from her blog Danni's Dreams asked if I would like to be a guest designer for her Flutter By Wednesday Challenge today! Well of course I said YES! Danni is such a sweet heart and a talented lady and the two of us have known one another through blogging for quite some time. So it's my honor to share my butterfly cards as the guest designer for the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge!

Even though I knew I wanted to create a card using butterflies I needed a layout so the card that you see up top was created using the Mojo Monday Sketch. The bottom card was created with the help of a swap that I received, Michelle created her swap using the directions she got here and I thought that her card was so unique with the way it was folded I couldn't wait to give it a try!


Once I had my Diamond card folded together I didn't really know which way to photograph it, standing up or laying down but either way I think the pop up design of this card is pretty cool. When the card is folded closed and flat it measures 4"x4".
Supplies: Flight of the Butterfly, Thank You Kindly, Darling Dots (Hostess), Maine Blueberry DSP, Nestabilities, Circle punches, Ribbon, Brads, Pop dots. Colors: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, Whisper White.












What are you waiting for, grab your butterfly stamps and come join in on the challenge!
