Fluttering By with some challenges!

This week Flutter By Wednesday #108 is being sponsored by Meljen's Designs

A bit about Meljen's Designs:

Meljen's Designs ( is a digital stamp company owned and illustrated by Melissa Jenkins. She illustrates whimsical, fun digital images inspired by her kids and family. The Meljen's Designs store officially launched on April 1 and it is steadily growing. The new store offers instant downloads, organized categories, and a search feature. We frequent new releases, freebies every Mondays at the artist's blog (, and challenges every Thursdays at the DT Blog ( Please visit the store to find more of Melissa's wonderful images!

The winner gets to choose 4 digi stamps from her store- how fabulous is that? In order to participate you need to use a butterfly fairy or angel and it has to be a new creation! Thanks for fluttering with us this week!

I used the Pixie Dust Fairy digi stamp from Meljen's Designs. I decided to mimic the stitch pattern in the image around the edge of the card. The pp has both butterflies and glowers on it and of course and extra flower in the corner, just for good measure. I put some Ranger Glossy Accents on the wings and like the look.
