Flutter By Wednesday #194 - Send a Smile 4 Kids

This card is for two challenges. It's for Flutter By Wednesday Challenge #194. The FBW challenge this week is to make a card for Send a Smile 4 Kids. Remember to include a butterfly, angel or fairy. You can find the information on the Flutter By Wednesday blog. You can also check it out directly on the Smiles 4 Kids Challenge blog. It's also for the challenge on the SAS4K challenge blog, which is to create a Clean and Simple card for kids. Be sure to check out what the FBW Design Team has come up with!


The idea for my card actually came from the SAS4K challenge. It gave a definition of Clean and Simple. Then it stated "CAS does not mean slap a couple stickers on a card and call it done." That reminded me that I had some beautiful butterfly stickers that would work very nicely:) I cut out a white circle for the butterfly to rest on. I drew in the antennae. I matted with Pale Plum cardstock cut with a Nestability. I mounted on Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment (from Papertrey Ink) on the white cardstock, then embossed with a Swiss Dots folder. I matted with the same plum cardstock. You can't see it in the photo, but the butterfly has sparkle to it.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Very pretty - I think I have those stickers or at least rub ons that would look great this way.
