FBW Challenge #102

Today is FlutterByWednesday Challenge # 102

it is an open challenge, so that means it just needs a butterfly, angel, or fairy on the creation.

This little guy is SO sweet. He's from WinkWinkInk and I believe he's called Blossom Baby. I should know, since I purchased him, but good grief, people, I'm recovering from surgery and on hard drugs here. LOL Actually, I've only had Tylenol and Ibuprofen today. Watched 27 Dresses today FINALLY as well, I've only owned it for EVER. OH, I digress...

Blossom Baby. I colored him with Prismacolor Markers in Cream and...uh oh... Tulip yellow... WHew... I colored him a while ago so I had to look at which color I used. Then I stickled his adorable little wings with Waterfall Stickles, which made them sort of blue. So I mounted him on a blue piece of scrap paper I had, and a lovely yellow scrap of patterned paper leftover from a scrapbook project I did. I used some Bazzill Blingz brads and some yellow ribbon. I stamped the word "cherish" from SU! Baroque Motif's set in Versamark on the same blue paper the colored image is matted on, and punched it out with an oval. Then I used a ribbon punch on either end to create a place for the ribbon to thread through to make the oval a "ribbon charm". I also used my Tim Holtz paper piercer (you can also use a large sewing needle or pin on a mouse pad) to pierce the blue papers, and then drew lines between the holes for a faux stitched effect. (OK, so I'm not so great at that part, and I probably should have used white, the black is a little severe, but hey.. it's a hand made card!)

ANYWAY... here it is...
