Things with wings

It's been a long time since I posted so tonight I decided to share a card I made for my sisters birthday . She seldom visits my blog so I think I'm safe . There's several challenges this week that calls for things with wings . I used Graphic 45 paper Botancial garden which I've been hoarding for some time and not wanting to cut it . But since a sister is special I decided to make her card with it . I layered it on light blue c/s and distressed the edges for a shabby look . I finally got my TH 's Mixed Media Thinlet dies recently so just had to try them out and can see it will be one of my favorite dies . Butterfly is CL ,stamp from Just Rite stamps and ribbon May Arts. I fussy cut the blue flowers, leaves and blue butterfly and popped them up for dimenision. Star dust stickles were added for sparkle to the flowers and butterfly .




I'm entering this in the following challenges:

Cheery Lynn Design #195  ATG

Frilly and Funkie  Things with Wings

All Sorts Challenge #321 Butterfly

Fussy and Fancy Friday#144 Things with wings

613 Ave Create #134 ATG
