Wee Memories Challenge 17

Happy Saturday! It's time for another Wee Memories challenge...but before I get to that, I wanted to mention that Wee Memories is now on Facebook! You can "like" us using the button in the Wee Memories sidebar, or you directly access the page here.

We also have a guest designer for the month of August...Courtney Lee! Stop by and give her some love, will ya?

Now for this week's challenge...we're using one of my favorites...butterflies!

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Etsy shop The Gilded Bee. She makes the most incredible paper goods, including butterflies that will make you gasp in awe! In keeping with our challenge, our lucky winner this week will receive some of those amazing butterflies. (Psst...I'm jealous I can't win this prize!)

For my butterfly, I decided to play with some Hawaiian Shores felt I picked up at Papertrey's CHA booth last week. I love the texture felt adds to a project. I used my Nesties to create the butterfly, then added a button and some bling to dress it up.

So, ready to play along? Head over to the Wee Memories blog for all the details. Enter by midnight PST on Thursday to be eligible for the prize.

I can't wait to see all your beautiful butterflies this week!

Stamps: Mega Mixed Messages (PTI)
Paper: PTI white, PTI pp
Ink: Berry Sorbet
Accessories: Nestabilities butterflies, PTI button & felt, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Fiskars upper crest punch, dimensionals

I think your choice of the bracket punch is perfect because it mimics the shape of the butterfly wings. Cute.
