Crafty Cardmakers Challenge  #186 - Things with Wings

Mary is hosting our challenge today, and the theme is Things With Wings. Anything with wings will count, birds, butterflies and other insects, fairies, airplanes, even hearts as long as they have wings!

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it has wings.

Please remember our 15 total challenge rule!

I decided to make a card using this adorable digital image from 'Sugar Nellie Loves'  called ' Hey Little Birdie'. I coloured her with Prismacolor Markers, using Copics for the flesh tones. The sentiment is a freebie from 'Playing with Paper'. I die cut the bird placed in the circle sentiment from Heartfelt Creations 'Garden Romance Dies' set. The little fairy's hat was made dimensional with pop ups.

FTH March -2017 Stamp of the Month Challenge

FTH Digital Stamp of the Month Challenge March,  2017, using the image   'Lucky Lil Birdie'. So darn cute, I wasn't sure what occasion I wanted to celebrate with this image so  I just picked Good Luck and inside I will  have a message wishing someone  good luck on whatever endeavour they are about to  set forth on. At least that is the plan!.
I used the sketch from  March's Challenge at the 'The Sketch File' for my layout  and coloured the image with PrismaColor markers,  The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up's  set  'So happy For You'.

Have a good day!
