Fussy And Fancy Friday Challenge #131 Wings and Things

Good morning everyone and welcome to my post for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog. This fortnight we are challenging you to use the theme Wings and Things, so think of things with wings - butterflies, fairies, dragons, birds, dragonflies etc etc.

I used the cute Butterfly Girl from Crafty Sentiments for my card - she is adorable, don't you think? I just had to have butterflies on my card for this challenge as I'm sure you all know, I do love my butterflies and now Spring is coming (I hope it's coming anyway) we should start to see these pretty insects around soon!

And here she is... A different colour combo from me too, but it made me think of Spring (and helped to slightly reduce that mountain of patterned papers I have!)


This card is also for Creative Fingers Challenge #64 Anything Goes, Creative Knockouts Challenge #73 to use lots of embellishments (I have ribbon, flowers, pearls butterfly border and die cuts) and for Through The Craft Room Door's Challenge Anything Goes.
