Bugs, Butterflies, and Winged Things

Happy Friday All!

Hope you've had another great week. I'm looking forward to the weekend and hopefully some sun. We've got some crazy rain today, so much that I can't see out my windows! Hopefully that will all end soon!

Today is Friday and you know what that means, a new challenge over on Stamp Something and this week we have a bunch of "new" things to talk about. First, we have a new challenge of course and this week we want to see you make something with bugs, butterflies, or other winged things! You can get pretty creative with this one, have fun.

We have a new sponsor this week too, Fred She Said Designs has donated a great $10 gift certificate to their shop for one lucky winner and they sent over a few new release digital images for the DT to work with this week too.

And, our last bit of new news is some design team changes. Sadly, Alex has stepped down due to a new job, time constraints, and needing to prioritize and have more time for family. We wish her all the very best and will miss her! But, with the departure of Alex we do have good news and that's our new DT member Janna, of Janna's Creative Outlet! We are very excited to have her joining us and look forward to working with her in the months to come!

Now, on to my card....This digital image is Emma with Butterfly from Fred, She Said. The butterfly on the image and the charm are my little winged things for this challenge. The image was colored with Copics and highlighted with a glitter pen in clear and gold. The papers are BasicGrey Wisteria and SU! cardstock in the colors Chocolate Chip, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, and Certainly Celery. This combo fits the challenge at Color Throwdown this week and I love the colors!

I used the sketch from ABC-Challenge which was "X on it" to use this sketch and have an "x" of ribbon, which I did with some eyelets and eggplant grosgrain ribbon. The eyelets also fit the challenge of "eye eye" at Cute Card Thursday this week. I added some Prima flowers and a butterfly charm to finish off this card.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great day and a great weekend! Happy stamping! :)
