FBW #195 - Open challenge!

Hey everyone!

Thank you to everyone that played in last week's Create a card for a Child challenge with the Flutterby Wednesday team.  You all did a fabulous job and I hope we inspired you to send in your card to Send a Smile 4 Kids.  Thanks again! 

Now are you ready to jump back in for another challenge this week?  I hope so cause it's everyone's favorite!  OPEN CHALLENGE!  Create a card using a butterfly, angel or fairy. 

I was cleaning my craft space and under a pile of scrap papers I found my Ashe Emerald Fairie stamp that I recently purchased from All That Scraps.  What luck!  I was in need of a baby card and this turned out to be a pretty perfect image to work with.  Here is my completed card.  It's another CAS one for me.

Isn't this image adorable?! I've been eyeing him and a few of the others for quite some time and when there was a sale I grabbed him up.  So glad I did, I can see many more cards with this adorable little fairy.  What's cool is that I can just as easily go totally girly with the colors or neutral.  For this card it had to have boy colors.  This is my favorite boy color combo.  I colored in the grass with Copics as well as the mushroom.  The cap of the mushroom is paper-pieced, shaded in with Copics and sparkled with Stickles.  The sentiment is from AmyR's baby sentiments stamp set.

On Monday (last week) I had lunch with Kim Yu and Kathy.  If you don't know, Kim is pregnant (I confirmed) and having a boy.  I had her in mind for this card to say Congratulations and Welcome to her future little one.  We went to BJs and had a good time.  Here's a picture of us:

She's so tiny!!  It was great fun having lunch and we plan to do it again in the future, or as her pregnancy allows.  :)

Time for me to get outta here and time for you to get your creative juices flowing.  Create something, anything for our open challenge at Flutterby Wednesdays just make sure your butterfly, angel or fairy is noticeable.  What are your favorite baby color combos?  Let me know I always love trying new colors.

Mahalo for stopping by!!

Hi Leanne,
How nice to have lunch with blogging friends. You card is adorable, as always. Sweet image and you're right, it can be for a boy or girl. Hmmmm, I've never given it much thought but perhaps my fave baby color combo might be lavendar and light green. I should try it out. He-he. Have a great day / evening.
