Winged things for Dutch Dare

Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge over at Dutch Dare. We're sponsored by Sweet n Sassy Stamps and we want to see something with wings on your creations. Here's mine...

I've printed the image a few times and decoupaged it, colouring with copics and layering with 3D glue. I used glossy accents on the eye section and angled the wings to go in at the top and out at the bottom.

 I used a Spellbinder circle to cut the base layer owl out. I left it in the die and masked off the owl before I used Forest Moss distress ink. I've added a bow with an owl charm attached under the image...
The backing papers are by First Edition and are from the Daydream 6x6 pad. I added some lace and ribbon from my stash, together with some spotty candi. I've stamped the sentiment onto a foiled rectangle (this stamp came frr with a magazine). I made the flowers some time ago and found them in my stash along with the leaves, which started out a rust colour. I used forest moss distress ink and Patina Green mica powder on them.

Now it's your turn...
 I would like to enter this for the following:-
