A DareDevil Flutterby?

Please be sure to scroll down and see my Cuttlebug Challenge post below!

This Wednesday I have combined my challenges for Flutterby Wednesday and Whimsical Wednesday: The Diedrich Dare! I don't plan to do this often, but just needed it to happen this week!

Great sketch huh?!? It's fun to think outside the box and make cards that aren't *square* or *rectangles*.

I kept the basics of the sketch but did eliminate the square layer because I didn't want to cover up this pretty paper and simplified it quite a bit as well in regards to the sentiment placement and the little circles that I left off completely. I do want to revisit this sketch and play exactly as it's sketched because those little circles completely intrigue me! I can't wait to see what the rest of the Daredevils do with that little tidbit!

The party continues for Danni's birthday and we have special guest designers (they are all special, but this week - they are Extra-Special!) -- her kiddos are designing along with us! Isn't that great? I love it when my little man gets all art-y with me and so I know how great this is for Danni too! Can't wait to see what they have just for us! The challenge - use SPARKLE!! I love sparkle --- but kept it low key on this card! I wanted the focus to be the pretty paper and the sentiment!

I used some Shimmer-It paint to highlight the embossing on my base as well as the pattern on my middle layer. I think you can see it better in the next photo:

My *faith* is Making Memories letter stickers in white that I just DTP'd with some Antique Linen distress ink.

Take a moment to visit the rest of the Daredevils and see their use of the sketch! You can also find out the winner of our first prize on The Diedrich Dare blog!
And of course, you have to see how the Flutterby girls incorporated SPARKLE in with their butterflies and/or fairies as well!
That's it for me today! Have fun visiting everyone!!

Wowee Cassie you sure have rocked the sparkle. I adore your circular card and love that shimmerz on your bugging. What a pretty butterfly, a totally awesome creation.
