Creative cottage challenge #6 - Things with wings !



Here is my DT card for the Creative cottage challenge blog.
This week, challenge # 6, the challenge is to include "things with wings".

I have used papers from the "Come rain or shine kit" available here. I am seriously loving this large flower print with it's doodled feel and gorg zingy colours.
I used the ole faithful bazzill basic cardstock in black for the base and scored and folded it into a gatefold card. I don't make many of these but enjoyed a change and I love the way the ribbon tie looks.
I stamped my butterflies (think they are from Papermania) onto another paper from the kit and then onto acetate with Stazon and used stickles (my mums - 'cause I didn't have the right colours - thanks mum x) to add some bling to the wings.
When they were dry - I hate waiting for things to dry - I layered them up and added them to the card along with a sentiment from docrafts and more stickles on the flowers.
A wrap around ribbon fixed on the card back and tied in the front was the finishing touch.
Thanks for looking. I hope you like it
((hugs)) Suzie xx
