Birthday Flutter By Wednesday Blog Hop!

Today is the first of TWO Flutter By Wednesday blog hops to celebrate Danni's (the owner and creator of FBW) birthday! Today we have the friends of Danni's fluttering along to share some amazing creations to inspire you!!

You should have fluttered here from Shirley. If not, start at the beginning of the hop at the Flutter By Wednesday Blog

Be sure to leave comments at each of the stops you flutter to as there are some surprises hidden!! You have until Sept 9th, 2013 at midnight CST to flutter along. 

We also hope that you'll join in this week's challenge at Flutter By Wednesday, which is anything goes with a butterfly or fairy! A little butterfly told us that if there are 100 entries there will be a prize!!

Here is my project for the day!


This gorgeous fairy is from Whimsy Stamps and her name is Silver. Isn't she gorgeous?? I just love working with her. I am fairly new to the whole coloring scene and I am definitely still learning a lot!! I colored Silver with Copic markers. I did my best to blend and make her have some definition. 

The card is a 5 x 5 square card. Silver is a fairly large image so I thought that she would be a little too big for a standard A2 size card. 

To finish the card off, I matted her, added some flowers and brads, twine, a button, and the saying "believe." I think the saying "believe" fits perfectly with a fairy. 

When Danni first posted about having participates for her birthday blog hop, I didn't automatically join because its her Flutter By Wednesday and I dont own even one butterfly stamp. Can  you believe that?? I have way too many stamps to even count and I don't have even ONE butterfly. I know that shocked Danni! So I was pleased when she said we could also use a fairy. Once she posted that, I jumped right in. This is my first blog hop, so I hope that you are enjoying your time with all the gorgeous creations. 

Now you should hop on to Korin! Don't forget to flutter to the FBW Blog tomorrow for another hop full of more fluttery inspiration!! 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANNI!
