Things With Wings at Sundays With Crissy

Hi everyone, I hope all those in the UK are enjoying their Bank Holiday Monday - I notice we have typical Bank Holiday weather, lol. Don't worry, there's another Holiday at the end of the month to look forward to.

Today I have a card that I made for our challenge this month at Sundays With Crissy. The theme is Things With Wings, so that could mean birds, butterflies, airplanes, or anything else you can think of, as long as it has some wings it will be perfect.

I chose to use this gorgeous digi image by Crissy called Rose Butterfly, which I coloured with copic markers. I went for an overall colour scheme of purple and white, which are 2 colours I just love together, so I searched through my stash of papers and found 2 very old packs by Paper Cellar and Papermania with some nice papers in the right shades. A square doily and some leafy diecuts provide the white to go with my purples.  No extra embellishments on this card, so just a little stitching around the inner mat finishes it off.

Joan Ervin said...

Oh my word, Carole...this is absolutely STUNNING!!!!! I just marvel and how you blend your colors sooo perfectly...even the tinest spaces!!!! The papers in the background are pretty, too, and match beautifully....I am always on such a high when I find papers that match the colors I'm using...LOL (the simple pleasures of life)!! The white vine diecuts and the punched lacy border are such gorgeous details....love every little detail on this, gf!!!!!
I'm sorry the weather was bad for you holiday....hopefully the sun will come out soon and you can enjoy being outside!! We actually got a little rain this week...I'm sure George's tomato plants enjoyed that!! We are going south to see my son's family today...it's been over a month since we got together so I'm sure the kids will have lots of stories to tell!! Hope you have a fun and relaxing weekend and you get to see a little sunshine!!!
