Wings....

Had a bit of time this morning to make a card for the Daring cardmakers challenge this week;

WINGS!
You can pick any subject, any colour but the card has to incorporate WINGS of some sort-so you can do - butterflies, angels, fairies, insects,birds........anything basically if it has wings!


Hmmm..... I have a couple of butterfly dies, but whatever I do with them they always look pants! I did consider using some Pheobe paper with birds on but that would have meant cutting into a new sheet.

Rummaged through a box of old bits and pieces that I save from various sources(usually packaging from gifts, old xmas cards etc) and found this little resin butterfly.




PP BG Pheobe, primas, eyelets(have resolved to use more eyelets, as I have thousands of them and hardly ever use them) ribbon, birthday stamp and some hand stitching.
Not too keen on this,butterflies are not really my thing. Another card to donate to the local hospice I think.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

These papers are just divine arent they. I love what you've done, the flowers, stitching and what a perfectly matching butterfly.

Gorgeous, I can't see why you're not happy with it.
