Flutter By Wednesday #187


Happy hump day everyone!!
I'm so excited, tomorrow night, Renate and I are packing up her truck and trekking down to Anaheim.  For vacay?  Nope, we're going to CHA!!  Yeppers, this will be our 3rd time at CHA with the awesome duo of La-La Land Crafts, Eric & Irina.  If you are going to be at CHA I hope you can stop by our booth (#1780) and say hi.  I am looking forward to greeting some old friends, meeting new people and hopefully getting to put some faces to some of you who will be attending.  I'll try to post pictures as often as I can.  But don't be surprised if I'm MIA for several days.  I'm pre-posting so I don't miss any DT deadlines, but commenting will have to be put on hold.  Sorry in advance!  :)

Okie dokie, now back to our regularly scheduled program...  This week's challenge over at the Flutter By Wednesday blog is all about EMBOSSING.  Use any sort of embossing technique on your card/project along with your butterfly, fairy, or angel.  Once you are done creating head on over to the FBW blog and directly link up your photo to challenge #187 using the Inlinks button at the bottom of the post.  For more fluttery inspiration please visit the talented FBW ladies by visiting the Flutter By Wednesday blog.



For my card I used Yoshimi, the newest addition to the Sister Stamps line.  I went pretty CAS even tho there's a lot of color going on.  I colored her with Copics, but also paper pieced her kimono and hair ribbon.  The origami paper (Aitoh) has a really pretty butterfly and sakura pattern.  I dry embossed the white cs using a cherry blossom branch embossing folder (Cuttlebug).  I added a MS butterfly and also some pearls which I colored blue.  The sentiment is from TGF (OA-Happy Day)  
Yoshimi
Alrighty friends, hope you can play along with us this week.  Remember to use the emboss technique on your project/card and don't forget to add a butterfly, angel or fairy.  Mahalo for stopping by!  Have a terrific Wednesday and happy fluttering!

Hugs,
Leanne

Supplies not listed above:
Red cs (Bazzil), Black & white cs (Recollections), blue shimmer paper (DCWV- Linen closet cs matstack), cream pearl pen.
