Today is DT member Stef's birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU...HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU...HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR STEFFFFFFFFFF...HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!! Be sure to stop by and show her some love too...she's nothing but sweet!

This week's challenge is to use a butterfly or faerie (flutterbies) along with eyelets or brads on your creation. Here is my take on the challenge...

Rather simple in style this week, but I love, love, love the flourish butterfly! Please let me know what you think too! :O) Have a great day!

My dearest Lelia...Thanks so much for pointing out that I left off your name. I am so incredibly sorry! It was not at all intentional. I have edited my post and sidebar to include it. It has been one of those days...My computer keeps crashing, etc. I feel like I am losing my mind. I apologize!

This is so simple but oh so elegant!! Love your colors and the butterfly!!
