Friendships - Flutter By Wednesday #179

Good morning everyone! 
Brrrr!!!  It's been so cold the past couple of nights, and as I write this up, my poor hands are freezing!!  I think I've got about 3 layers of clothing on, and in a sec I'm about to grab a blanket, but I can't type with gloves on so I'll have to stop every so often and blow hot air on to my fingers..   hahaha, sorry just had to share that little tidbit with ya!  hahaha
Soooo, guess who was asked by a certain lovely Flutter By Wednesday coordinator to be a guest designer?  Yep, that would be me.  :)  I was really touched that the lovely and talented Danni Bindel, asked me to participate.  I am so excited to share with you my card for this week's Flutter By Wednesday challenge #179!  This week's challenge is to create a project dedicated to Friendships.  If you are not familiar with the rules here they are:
•Challenge this week is to create using the theme~ Friendship along with your butterfly, fairy or angel
•Once you've created your NEW creation, please leave a direct link using the InLinkz button on the FBW #179 post.
•Danni reserves the right to remove any links not linked properly or that she deems inappropriate!
•Enter your link before midnight (PST) next Tuesday, November 15th, 2011.
•Have fun

Pretty simple & fun yeah?  I think everyone has a card or project in mind for this fun challenge.  And if you need some wonderful inspiration, head on over to the Flutter By Wednesday blog and check out what the design team has for you.  They will surely have some wonderfully fluttery friendship inspirations for ya!  I hope you can join us this week.

Now here's my card featuring a Sara Burrier digital image, Lady of Opal, that I purchased from Crafts & Me.  Fell in love with this image and was so happy to finally get to color her up.  Since it's Fall , I decided to go with fall-like colors.  The layout is super CAS as I just wanted to showcase the image with a few accents here and there. 

Isn't she a lovely image?  I love her elf-like features and the beautiful details in her wings.  I had a blast coloring her up with Copics.  I hope you can see the glittery parts.  The leaf is a punch colored with Copics and the sentiment is an AmyR stamp.  Used a combination of Tea Dye and Wild Honey Distress inks for the background.  I thought she would look lovely surrounded by light and I thought I did a pretty good job of showcasing that. The ribbon softened up the card which I was hoping it would do. 

Okie dokie, I hope you enjoyed my card I made for this week's Flutter By Wednesday challenge #179.  I am so honored to be a part of the team this week and want to Thank Danni for asking me to join this lovely and talented group of artists.  Thank you Danni!!

Have a wonderful 1/2 way to Friday day!  Mahalo for stopping by!
