Things with wings!

Good morning, another beautiful warm sunny day here...spring has arrived at last! A quick post as I'm planning to spend today outside :) . Our new challenge at Crafty Calendar kicks off today...the theme is 'things with wings'  and we're sponsored this month by Angie's Cards and Digis and Crafty Ribbons. I chose to use this cute bug image, courtesy of  Angie's, and only realised after colouring it that there wasn't a wing in sight!!!! Soooo I added all the tiny punched butterflies and use a paper with butterflies on it! With hindsight I think it would have been better to use a plain background, as this is a bit busy! Colouring medium- copics, the image was fussy cut then given dimension with a ball tool and pinflair glue.
Thanks for calling by today, don't forget to take a look at Crafty Calendar Challenge Blog, there's some wonderful creations from my lovely teamies that you won't want to miss! Hope you'll be inspired to join us this month.
Have a fabulous weekend!

It may be a bit busy but it overflows with bright, happy, cheerful, exuberance. I would say it was a successful recovery. Nice card.

Hugs and Blessings,

Don't want any of them in my garden though Chris.

So a bit of gardening and a bit of bowling tomorrow x
