Sweet Stampin' - things with wings

Our challenge for this week at Sweet Stampin' is 'things with wings', and we're sponsored by Lili of the Valley who are offering one lucky winner a £10 voucher, and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher prize.



I've used one of my favourite images from the Valentine Bird Collection from DigiStamp Boutique - it's actually a single bird image, but I repeated it and flipped the second bird, making it slightly smaller than the first one.  It's a solid image, so no colouring involved, but I outlined the hearts with a sakura clear stardust pen for a bit of shimmer.  The frame shape is Stampin' Up, striped paper is Pink Petticoat, mini scalloped border is a MFT dienamics die and the corners are Whimsy.

I'm having a lazy Saturday at home today, as we just don't seem to stop during the week at the moment.  I'm hoping to catch up with lots of your blogs and do a bit of colouring, and watch some Olympics of course! Hope you all have a lovely day :o)

Wow, your card is so effective in those colours. Hope you have a fab lazy day. I'm doing similar as hubby has gone back home to Sheffield for the weekend to visit his folks, so I'm planning on doing lots of crafting and generally loafing around. I've only just got out of my jammies !!! Have fun.
