Things with Wings at Sparkles

Hello again!

Hopefully no-one is falling over in shock at the two posts in one day happenings. I'm back to tell you about the new challenge at Sparkles Challenges. This is another scheduled post, right now I hope to be dressed to the nines with a glass of champagne in hand...

Crikey, that sounds like there's a worry that I might be without clothes. I need to work on sentence construction. What I meant was the boring conference-y bit of the day should be over and it's now the gala dinner. Which I have a fancy new dress for. Which I will be wearing.

This month's theme is


For my DT work I wanted to use the last of my gorgeous Bo Bunny Valentine's papers. This little birdy was too cute to cover up with anything, so rather than me stamping and colouring a different image I made him the focus of my card. The ribbon, cardstock and gingham button brads are from my stash.

To see what my teammates have created, please visit us at Sparkles Challenges. Our sponsor this week is Lily of the Valley. I have a very long wish list of 'wants' from LOTV, and one lucky winner will get a £10 voucher for their store.

Also entered into the following challenges:
Incy Wincy Designs - Recipe - 2 papers, 3 embellishments, 1 image.
Love to Create Challenges - Buttons & Bows
Paper Creations Ink - Recipe - 1 image, 3 embellishments, 2 papers

Until next time,
