It's Flutter By Day Times Two

This is my card for Flutter By Challenge #57 at Danni's Dreams. I've noticed that the cards I've been making lately with pastel cardstock don't photogragh well. They look kind of faded or foggy. But I don't have a photo editing program on this computer, so I guess they will have to do. It gives you the general idea anyhow. You can enlarge the photo to see the details better if you want.

My friend, Julianne, made the beautiful Flutter by for me. In the photo below you can see the detail better and also the glitter on it.


Stamps: Flourishes - Autumn Leaves, Spatter - My Paper Moon, Sentiment - The Rubbernecker Stamp Co.

Ink: Jet Black StazOn, Pretty in Pink SU

Paper: Bazzill Cardstock

Accessories: Crystal Stickles, Gem Flowers
Update Added: I use my spatter stamp from My Paper Moon nearly every time I stamp. I noticed that Becky has it on sale for only $1.25. Check it out along with her other great sale stamps here.

This second Flutter By card is for last week's Flutter By challenge #56 and for a garden challenge on one of the Yahoo groups I belong to. I intended to skid in at the last minute and post it yesterday, but I accidently deleted the photo from my computer, so had to wait until this morning to take another picture. (My camera doesn't take decent close up photos after about 2:00p.m.) Last week's challenge was to make a card inspired by a gorgeous photo that Danni had taken and posted on her site. This card isn't at all what I had planned. But when I received a package of stamped images from my friend, Jennifer, and saw this image that so closely resembled Danni's photo I just couldn't resist using it.

Here's a close up view of the image.


Accessories: Prismacolor Pencils, Tombow Markers, Gel Pen, Paper Piercing Tool, Fiskar Border Punch


  • Much needed rain last night
  • A visit with a friend today
  • Happy Mail from my mom
  • Some extra time with my husband while he's between college classes

Have an awesome day!!!

Inky hugs!

Hi Sis - I love both the cards - they're beautiful. I also love the new look for your blog site - did you recently change it or is my alzheimers showing again?? :)
Love & Prayers - miss you!

Hi Shelly,

You did a gret job on both of your cards!!! The pastel colors actually turned out really good on this fist card this time.

I end up doing a lot of editing of my pictures before I post them to get the colors right and make them sharp I like my pictures really sharp!!! LOL

Both cards are great and I love that they are both very different from each other!!!
