Fluttering by...

Happy Thursday! Hope life is treating you well crafty friends. I'm looking forward to our upcoming long weekend (Canada Day tomorrow) ... took an extra day off on Monday to relax a little bit longer.

The Seize the Birthday topping/option this week is 'bees, birds or butterflies'.... but it's always an option and birthday is really the only 'must'.  Having fun with sponges and stencil again this week.  One thing I did on this card that is a bit of a 'trick'.... I coloured my pearls with Copics.  I didn't have yellow or pink pearls so grabbed my markers and added some colour to some white pearls. 

Hope you can play along this week!  All the details are on the blog. Give some love to the rest of the DT - they have created some beautiful cards using our favourite winged creatures.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend,
