Flutter By Wednesday #225 - Open

Today starts a new challenge from Danni on her Flutter By Wednesday blog. This week's challenge is open - you simply need to include a butterfly or fairy on your creation and link it up to the blog. While you're there, why don't you check out the design team members' blogs?

I still have very limited time for creating. I took a little while on Monday night to work on this card. It's hard to tell, but I paper-pieced the butterfly out of patterned orange paper. I adhered it to a light blue and cream paper that looked kind of like clouds to me. I have already forgotten what company made the stamps - sorry! I matted with black, mounted on foam squares and added bling to the corners. I matted the bottom layer with black, also.

My mom had her surgery yesterday. They are hopeful that they removed all the cancer. Last I talked to my sister, my mom was in her room eating ice chips. I'll update you all once I hear more. Thanks so much for all of your prayers!

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