FBW #197 - Open challenge with Sparkle Creations!!

Hello everyone!!!

Wanted to say a big MAHALO to everyone that participated in last week's FBW challenge.  I hope you considered and sent off your card to Butterfly Kisses to brighten up some young person's day.  What a wonderful challenge that was!

This week we have a treat for everyone.  It's an open challenge this week and we are being sponsored by Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.  I'm pretty excited that Sparkle is our sponsor this week.  She's a sweetheart and so much fun to be around.  I was lucky enough to meet her at all 3 CHAs that I attended.  And we were on the same DT at TGF Farm Fresh Challenges.  Her images are fun to work with and unique in their design.  Please stop by the SCRS challenge blog where you can find tons of inspiration from her amazing design team and maybe join in a challenge or two.  Head on over to the FBW blog to see what the rest of the DT created using a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp.  Links to everyone's blogs is listed in the side bar.  We hope you can play along again and don't forget to add your butterfly, fairy or angel.

Here are some really cute bookmarks I put together for our make and takes at the Rubber stamp convention a few weeks ago.  Renate' came up with the concept and I finished them up.  They were a really big hit.  I made two versions using the same items.


The beautiful little girl is Cherry Blossom Rin.  As you can see, the only difference was the colors of the kimono, which were reversed and the randomness of the flowers.  Now keeping with our theme I added a black butterfly to each bookmark.  I think it adds a nice contrast and picks up the blacks in her hair.


Alrighty, now it's time for you to create your card or project and share it with us at the Flutterby Wednesdays challenge blog and don't forget the challenge details:
  • Open challenge
  • Use your fairy, butterfly or angel
 Mahalo for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your week!

Hugs,
Leanne

White and kraft cs (Neenah), black cs (Recollections); Brambleberry blossoms/garden party dp (Imaginisce) embossing folder (Cuttlebug); gems; MS butterfly punch; extra small and small sakura punches; pink and black ribbon (stash)
