FBW #200 - A very special Deconstructed Sketch

Hey everybody!!

As most of you know by now, Danni has decided that today will be the last day of challenges at Flutterby Wednesday.  I wanted to say Mahalo to Danni for being so kind by asking me to be a guest designer and then eventually a team member with this fantastic team of talented ladies who love all things with wings.  It's been such a wonderful experience and working with Danni has been awesome.  I won't be going far from her, she's one of my go-to daily blogs that I visit and we are FB buddies so she's not getting rid of me that easily.  lol..  So for our last Flutterby Challenge #200, we're going out on top with a bang and this amazing Deconstructed Sketch by Jen Shults.  

How cool is that?!  Now we want you all to participate and let's see how many cards we can link up.  Feel free to link up as many as you like just remember to add your butterfly, fairy or angel.  Make sure to head on over to the Flutterby Wednesday blog and hop on over to all the DT's blogs and see what they created for our last challenge.  We are all definitely going out with a bang!  :)

I changed up my card because I was inspired to make two.  For the first card I didn't use a colored image.  Just papers, a chipboard piece and a sentiment.  It's my first Mother's Day card and I love how it turned out.  Hope you do too.  (Sorry I did post this earlier, but changed it up, the butterfly is different.)

The dp is from Heidi Grace and one of my new favorites!!  The butterfly is chipboard from K&Company and the sentiment is from AmyR Stamps, All About Mom.

For the second card I printed out Heartfelt Love Wryn from Tiddly Inks to make a Thank you card.  I used the same Heidi Grace dp & K&Company chipboard butterfly, just flipped it.  I hand wrote the words in the hearts. 

I'm planning to send this second card to Danni as a Thank you for letting me be a part of this really amazing team. 

 Wow, can't believe how fast it came, but it's been a total blast for me.  Thanks to Danni again and I wanted to also say Thank you to the DT for all their support, encouragement and inspirations.  Thank you ladies for your friendship and for making these past months so much fun.  I will definitely be seeing you all in blogland.  Alright, I really hope you get to play with us for the last sketch and challenge for Flutterby Wednesday.  And make sure to leave some love for the DT, they've been so amazing.

Mahalo for stopping by!
