Dream Valley Challenges #82 Things With Wings

Good afternoon! I hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend. We have sunshine in S-E Hertfordshire, what a difference it makes, everyone seems so cheerful when the sun shines!

Unfortunately I have been fighting off a cold this past few days and it's now Cold - 1, Maggie - 0! I am mainlining Beecham's powders, they taste vile!!

Enough medical talk! There's another lovely challenge at Dream Valley and it's Things With Wings - very suitable, I think, with the birds flying about building nests.

Our fabulous sponsor is Kenny K and the prize is 3 digis!

I used Devilish Donna for my card, which is made for a Goth chick of my acquaintance!

I coloured her with Spectrum Noirs, glittered her wings, and then cut her out.

The card base is made with purple centura pearl, embossed with a big Spellbinders M-bossibilities folder. I stamped a polka dot border with an MFT stamp called Large Scale Backgrounds - I tried to do an ombre effect. The sentiment on the banner is from Paper Smooches' Sentiment Sampler stamp set, and I heat embossed it in white, then sponged Dusty Concord and Milled Lavender Distress Inks over it.

At the edge of the banner is a strip of black glitter card punched with a Fiskars border punch. I wound some grey embroidery floss around the card, and the metal charm below the bow was a gift from my daughter.

Do fly over to see the lovely creations my teamies have made, and then join in!

Thanks for looking, and have a lovely week!

love Mags B x
