Flutter By Wednesday: Old with the New

Good morning everyone! Since it's Wednesday this is my second post for the day. Be sure to scroll down for my Cuttlebug Challenge card!

Every Wednesday Danni hosts the Flutter By Wednesday challenge. We are asked to use either butterflies or fairies on our cards. This week she also challenged us to use 2 or more designer or patterned papers.

I sat down to work on my card and pulled out this patterned paper from my shelf. As I was digging in my card base stack, I found this base and the paper panel. I wish I could remember what sketch this is from (if you recognize it, leave me the info please!). It was several months back and I couldn't really get the other elements to work. I just put it aside for later. Today seemed like a good day to use it instead of cutting into fresh sheets of paper!

I created a fluffy bow and then stamped and trimmed out my butterfly. The matching sentiment from the set is stamped inside.

Be sure to use a butterfly or fairy in your creation and then enter the link in Mr Linky over at Danni's blog! Jodi Collins is our guest designer this week and Stef is the featured team member. Don't forget to visit the rest of the Flutter By girls too and see their lovely creations!

So many of you have been so sweet to send me a birthday card over the last week or so! They are CRAMMED - literally on my mantel. Maybe during naptime today I'll have time to actually photograph them all to share with everyone! If I haven't gotten by to tell you thanks yet personally, know that I will and that I so truly treasure the card! Perhaps I should move them into my bedroom as that is where I tend to type my posts!
Have a beautiful day girls!! May God truly bless you!

Hey Cassie,

This is gorgeous!!! Wow I love how you used the papers for Flutter By!!!!

Never heard back from you know who today!!! Oh well,

Great job on this.

As you know I will be taking a 5 week break from Flutter by after this week since Hubby will mostly be gone during Harvest here in Kansas. I will still try to get a Flutter by card done, but can not promise anything.

Have a Great Sunday tomorrow!!!
