Whitte butterfly

Today felt like a white on white kind  of day.  I love this soft glittery butterfly.  he is cut from Waxed paper from the kitchen then  dusted with a  soft glitter to give him sparkle.  I used  the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.   I love their sketches and use them a lot.  CASology has a move challenge.  Cuddlebug Mania has a butterfly challenge. Curtain Call has a charming challenge.  I certainly  find this  delicate creature charming.  Crafty Sentiments and  Through the Craftroom Door  both have anything goes challenges.  Fab N' Funky has a layers challenge.

Bee Girl

Here's another Bee card for you. This charming "bee"  is an image from Imagine That.  I enjoy coloring their digitals but often forget I have so many. The challenge at Imagine That is Springtime.  I used a  sketch I found at Sketch Saturday.  Suzy Bee's Bloomin Challenges has an Anything Goes/ with a fairyland  challenge.  I'm probably stretching  the imagination too far but a bee girl might be  consider a  mythical / fairytale creature. DiDi's Digitals has a pastel Color challenge.
