Flutter By Wednesday: White Dotted Butterfly

Good morning girls!! Happy Wednesday! You know I love Wednesday's because it's Flutter By and CuttleBug time! So this is my first post today and my Cuttlebug Challenge post (with tutorial) will follow! Be sure to look at both and let me know what you think!

Danni is the creator of Flutter By Wednesday and every week she challenges us to use a butterfly in our project. Just a few weeks ago she added fairies in to the mix too! Someday I know I'll use a fairy but for now I'm sticking with the butterflies!! I have sooo many ideas that Wednesday can't come fast enough!


I wanted a quick and simple card this week. Last week when I was cutting out numbers for my Cuttlebug card I also cut out some butterflies using the Cricut. I have no idea what cartridge this was on. I embossed him with my Swiss Dots folder and added the "hi" sentiment. The card looks VERY plain - which I didn't really mind as I love a good CAS (clean and simple) look. But it felt very flat and so I decided to stamp a subtle background. My Tres Chic was not easily available so I just started grabbing sentiment stamps that were and added them on, not really worrying about what they said, but hoping for a great mix of typography! What do you think? To finish off the card I used foam tape to adhere my butterfly.

I already hinted that this week was special!! Not only is Jodi our featured stamper this week (be sure to visit her and leave some love) but our Guest Flutter By Designer is Lauren!! THE Lauren!! Be sure to visit Danni's blog to see what she has to share with us today. As always, we want to see YOUR Flutter By creations too! Use keyword FBW at SCS or PCP or link up your blog post over at Danni's site in Mr Linky! Here are the rest of the team's links - go see what they came up with!!

Flutter on sweet friends!!

Cassie,

I am so late on making it around to comment, so sorry!!!

I can not believe you are just 1 hour away from me right now!!! I wish we could have set up some way to meet, but it is important you spend all that time with your family and that new nephew!!!

I love your flutter by card!!! You did a great job on it!!!

I am guessing maybe Nicole did not like my DT pieces because she never did leave a comment on my cards and has on all the others I am pretty bummed aboout that!!!

Can not wait to see what you came up with though!!!
