Take Flight

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Hubby is home, a bit sore and tired but doing okay.  Phew what a relief!  I hope you have all had a lovely day and managed to craft.

Tonight's card is made for the One Word Wonder over on Facebook Group, Mad Crafters Giggle. The word for today is Birds.  Here  is what I made.


1. A5 shaped white base card
2. First layer is oval striped card which I have distressed with DI Shaded Lilac.
3. The sentiment is IndigoBlu which was free with my Simply Card and Papercrafts Magazine, I stamped this with Versafine Imperial Purple and embossed with clear embossing powder then distressed with DI Shaded Lilac.
4. I stamped the bird also an IndigoBlu stamp called "Take Flight" with Imperial Purple Versafine, I then embossed and coloured the wings with Spica Pen and added white dots.
5. To finish off I cut out the flourish using Tattered Lace Cherished Flourish and added gems.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
