Flutter By Wednesday: 10 Minute Inspiration

Good morning girls!! It's time for another Flutter By Wednesday! This week Danni provided us with a gorgeous photo to use as inspiration. It's so pretty and has the look and style of a professional photo!

We also have a guest designer this week - Kerry Donovan-Casey. Great to have you Kerry! Be sure to check out her creation for this week and leave a comment for her!

Our featured team member this week is Kim!! I ♥ her! Recently found her through a shared love of PMS and just am thrilled to be working with her weekly each week! Stop by her blog and leave her some love!!

Isn't it beautiful!?! I think that flower is called a coneflower. I have one that grows in my garden. Yes - one! I'm not that talented at gardening and truth be told, I'd rather stamp or read than pull a weed! LOL!!

I wasn't sure what direction to take; inspiration challenges are so open and can go in so many directions. But I wanted a quick card as my bed and a movie are calling my name!


This card didn't even take me 10 minutes! The base is an odd size - it's about 3 1/2 x 5 1/4. Just a little scrap I had left over from another card - not from my TT card yesterday although it is the same color. I embossed it using the leaves folder and then sanded it. Of course, there isn't a lot of distinction as the cardstock is SU. However, I kept at it and the embossing did lighten up. In fact, it has a really cool suede like texture. I don't know if you can really pick up on it in the photo below or not.

Simple, simple! Gotta love that! Be sure to use keyword FBW when linking up your creation at PCP/SCS. We'd also love it if you left a link to your creation in Mr Linky at Danni's blog so we can all check it out!
Before I leave, an update on my blog candy. I sat down a bit ago to draw the winners. WOW! I love that so many of you are fans of lavendar. I've always wondered why I'd seen other bloggers with a printout list --- and now I know! It's hard to count and scroll and make sure it stays accurate! So I'll be printing it out in the morning and posting then!
Have a beautiful day!!
