Spread your Wings at Allsorts

Good morning. It's Saturday so that must mean it's time for a new challenge at 

and this time the lovely Brenda has picked the theme


Our sponsor this week is

and Sally is offering 1 lucky winner 
6 images of their choice

Here's my card:
I really really enjoyed putting this together.

And here's how I did it
I started by inking a piece of square card stock with Broken China Distress Ink and then inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy. Then I stamped PB Text Script all over using Versamark and heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White EP

I lightly inked a small tag with the same Distress Inks and over stamped with Creative Expressions swirl stamp and heat embossed with white EP
The butterfly is my favourite butterfly stamp - Creative Expressions - stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with True White EP onto Vellum I coloured the reverse with a Promarker, added a touch of Glamour Dust then cut it out and layered onto the tag with a few adhesive pearls added to the body.
Sentiment - Kaisercraft stamped and heat embossed and die cut with Spellbinders Gromet Tag and attached with some pearl brads.
I 'coloured' some white seam binding using Distress Inks to match and added a double bow with a button and some button twine to the top of the tag.

Hope you like it :o)
