Dream Valley Challenge 35 - Things with Wings

Hello, my dearios! I hope you're all enjoying a good weekend, in spite of this crazy weather. Flaming June!

It's time for another challenge at Dream Valley and we'd love to see your creations using Things with Wings Our sponsor this fortnight is Digi Doodle Shop



There's a voucher for $10 to spend at their online shop for one lucky winner!



I used one of their images, Butterfly Blossoms for my card and cut it out with a Nesties die. The card base and background papers were also cut with Grand Nesties on Excalibur, my wonderful Grand Caliber die-cutting machine. I coloured with Promarkers - the new pen tips are just brilliant for colouring a delicate image like this! I covered the butterflies' wings with glitter.

The papers are a mix of Funky Hand and Nitwits. I used a Martha Stewart Deep Edger Punch for the bit across the middle. The flowers are made with Retro punches and covered in Glossy Accents, and the orange centres are shiny stickers from Paperchase.

The sketch is from Friday Sketch Challenge - but like a numpty I miscalculated that challenge's dates, so I missed the boat! What a plonker!

Go over and have a look at the DT's offerings, they are lovely!

Have a good week, chaps, and thanks for looking!

PS - The end of June seems a good time for birthdays doesn't it! Unfortunately 5 years ago when I was holding my newborn girl it was pelting it down - repeated on her birthday this year!!!
