Butterflies and Stars

Happy Wednesday! I hope all of you are doing well and keeping cool in this crazy hot and humid weather. It's a great thing that the idea for a swimming pool came through, otherwise we'd all be taking cold showers all day long. lol. Anyway, it's Flutterby Wednesday so bring out your butterfly and fairy stamps and start stamping. This is challenge #62 and is an open challenge which means you can go to town with your card.
I have decided to go simple this time around so, I decided to choose a stamp from The Greeting Farm since to me they don't require a lot of embellishing and detail when placed on a card. I love these fairies and all the rest of the stamps from this line. One of the things I like about this card is the color combo, it's definitely one of my favorites. =)
To participate in Flutterby Wednesdays, click HERE and post your card by next Tuesday and a new Challenge and winner will be announced Wednesday. To view what the rest of the DT has created click HERE.
Today over at In Style Stamps, it's time for another Wednesday Challenge! The challenge this week is to create a card or project using an image from ISS, and add some stitching. It can be handstitched, sewn or drawn.
Since I already had my sewing machine out for a previous card I made, I chose to sew on my card and even made it point to change the color of the thread for an added effct. Hope all is well and have a great day!
