This card is going to a far away friend, in a far away place, along with a special package. (Don't peek Jenny!) Today is my last day before starting back to work after a wonderful summer off. If it weren't for Irene, I would be at work right now! I guess I have to thank her for that at least...
For this creation, I used a combination of 3 challenges for inspiration, and I am really pleased with the results. My first inspiration was:CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week is to : Use Stickers in your Clean And Simple design. rub-ons are fine too if you don't have stickers. This was no easy task for me at first. Stickers? I don't use them on cards, only memory book pages. You would crack up if you saw the monstrosity I created for my first try. Then I remembered that I had this gorgeous paper with coordinating stickers from Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden Collection. For my layout, I went with this week's wonderful sketch from the Clean & Simple blog : FTL155.
Finally, this week's Flutter By Wednesday #FBW168 is an open challenge! Anything goes as long as you have a butterfly, fairy or angel on your creation!! My butterfly sticker creation certainly fits the bill there. I love the way these three challenges inspired this creation. I am grateful for all of the work that goes into these challenge blogs, and so inspired by the work I see.
