One last Flutter By...

Hola chicas!

My card today is rather bittersweet... I made it for the 200th Flutter By challenge. And sadly this challenge will be the last one at Flutter By. I've enjoyed playing along in Danni's challenges for a couple years now so it will be kind of strange not having them to look forward to each week. Still, even though I will miss the challenges I couldn't miss making one final card for them. 

The challenge this week is a sketch so that took all the guess work out of the card. All I had to do was find the right papers to go along with this altered Anya that I put together. Even though the Flutter By challenge requires either a butterfly, fairy or angel to qualify, I always liked to have a fairy on my FB cards. So I thought it would be fun to alter up a little Anya fairy. I chose Sitting Cute's body with Princess Anya 3's head (minus her crown), then once she was glued together I added some vellum butterfly wings for her to flutter away with. The papers are all October Afternoon Sidewalks because the bright, happy colors totally caught my eye. And yes, that's another Studio Calico wood veneer embelly, just like the birds from yesterday. I'm really diggin' the different look that these cute things add to my cards.

I hope that if you have time to play along this week that you will join in and help give the Flutter By challenge a fond farewell. :)

Amy Miss Anya looks adorable as a little fairy. I love how you have colored her sweet brown hair and her skin as well. Adorable papers and wood embelly! I think this whole card would put a smile on anyone's face. I hope you have a great Saturday. Hugs, Lisa

You and I were both in an October Afternoon mood today! Love the scattering of flowers - she looks like she has landed in a field of flowers.

Another super cute "altered Anya" card here, Amy! Everything always coordinates so well and I love how you cut out those teeny-tiny flowers from the DP to add to her hair! Even the tiny flowers are so sweet and matches the DP!
