Things with Wings at An Oldie But Goodie

 Good morning. 
Thanks to everyone that joined in my One for the Boys challenge at 
last fortnight - we had some fabulous entries and it wasn't easy picking my Top3 - please pop over to the main challenge to see if you were one of the lucky ones.

  This fortnight the uber talented Sara has picked the theme of 


Here's my take on it:

I have used one of my favourite fairy stamps from LOTV - coloured with Distress Inks and a sprinkling of Cosmic Shimmer Glitter to the wings.
The scrummy DP's are the last bit of the 12x12 piece from Bo Bunny that I used last week - I think I might have to get some more :-)

Here's a close up of the image:

I also used this fabulous Spellbinders border die - I think it's Floral Doily Accents.
The sentiment is Papermania stamped and then die cut using Spellbinders Ribbon Banner and inked with Distress Ink before taking it out of the die.
Heart shaped button from stash stitched onto card.

Don't forget that to qualify for this fab prize on offer:
You need to use a rubber or acrylic stamp at least 6 months old - no digi images.

Challenges I took inspiration from:

LOTV - Button It
Crafty Cardmakers - Anything Goes
Creative Stamp Friends - Autumn Colours
House of Gilli - Fall/Autumn
Stamps R Us - Autumn/Fall
Gingerloft - The Colour Orange
Sparkles Forum - Something that Sparkles
Stamptacular Sunday - Photo Inspiration
Crafty Catz - Things with Wings
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes (looking for 1000 entries and they did it - whoo hooo)

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.
