FBW #163 Sunshine Butterfly

Hello, and welcome. I made this shabby chic card for Danni's FBW Challenge. This week is an open week as long as you have a fairy, angel, or butterfly on your creation. The inspiration for this card came from page 121 in the new IB&C. The pretty scalloped circle was cut with the new Perfect Pennants Bigz L Die, the label with Lots of Tags Sizzlit Set, and the butterfly was stamped first with a Butterfly Prints stamp, then punched with the matching Butterfly Punch. I used a small piece of First Edition DSP. I love the sentiment from the new Pursuit of Happiness set...I'm a sucker for quotes. See the speckles? This effect is made using the Color Spritzer Tool and a Stampin Write marker. I've had mine for well over ten years, and forget to use it sometimes. A little Daffodil Yellow Button with a Boho Blossom Punch, and leaves from the Bird Punch, and three Basic Pearls were the perfect additions to finish my card.

Tomorrow is Dorthy's workshop using the beautiful Inspired by Nature set. It promises to be a fun day as we haven't seen a couple of the ladies in a while. I hope you have a good weekend as well. Thank you for stopping by!
