Things with wings with Sparkles Monthly Challenges

Hi everyone.

There's a new challenge starting today over at Sparkles Monthly Challenges.

It was my turn to choose the theme this month and I picked
Things with wings.

Can't wait to see your projects. Here's mine...

I made an anniversary card for our best friends Sue & Mick. 
I printed the backing paper using My Craft Studio Elite (Quintessential Country Garden) using pearlescent paper. I've used a cream/gold pearlescent card as contrast and  added a deep plum coloured ribbon. I've built up the centre plaque using a Spellbinder stately circle, an Xcut doily and a tonic circle before adding Faux Quilled Flowers with candi centres.
 and  finished off with a Butterfly Flourish, which I cut in half.

I hope you'll join us. You could win a prize from our fabulous sponsor...

I would like to enter this for the following :-
Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge - Anything goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
CD Sunday Challenge - Happily Ever After (Backing paper)
One stitch at a time - anything goes with a die

Thanks for visiting. I hope to see you again soon.

Hugs Helen x
