TSG161 Winged Things

You know when you start making a card...and you see it in your head...then you put it on paper and it isn't ANYTHING like what you expected it to be? Well, that happens to me very rarely, but tonight, this card took on a life of it's own. Maybe it's all the stuff going on in my "real life", but wow...how out of my element was THIS? Only two layers on the base? And would you LOOK at all that cutting? What in the world....LOL!!

My card is for this week's There She Goes challenge, to make a card using "Winged Things". It is There She Goes Again week, and this week we are featuring three older sets, all with wings....including the set I have used today(Bee Happy), Spread Your Wings, and Love Birds. All gorgeous sets, and PERFECT for making your creations SOAR!!

So, not much to tell about my card, so I will list the supplies!! I used the Bee Happy set, paired with some Cosmo Cricket Baby Jane paper, Black Licorice(MFT), Banana Split(Bazzill), and X-Press It Blending Card card stock. I stamped all my images in Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored them with my Copics. I cut out three of the flowers, and all of the bees and popped them up. My brads are from Michael's, my spiral clip from Creative Express, and my Black Twill ribbon, and Lemondrop Twine are all from the Ribbon Carousel.

Speaking of the Ribbon Carousel, this card also works PERFECTLY for this week's challenge, Heavy Metal!! What card do I make that ISN'T covered with brads, right? LOL!!

Well, that is it for me for now! Be sure to check out both challenges, and I will see you back tomorrow night with this month's VIP hop from My Favorite Things!!!
