Double "D" Challenge - Just "Wing" It

Hello friends.  The Double "D" Challenge has a fabulous mood board to inspire us this time around with anything related to "WINGS".


I was inspired by the colors in the 3rd photo and the fairy in the 4th photo and came up with this card:


I recently had picked up one of the card making magazines made in the UK, and a lot of them have a freebie gift attached these days.  In this particular one there was a die for a fairy, and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to use it for this challenge.  My background was made using Lindy's Magical Powders - Tibetan Poppy Teal & Witch's Potion Purple.  If you've never seen or used these before, they're like Perfect Pearls on steroids...the shimmer and shine is unbelievable and almost impossible to photograph!  Here's a closer up where I tried really hard to capture it for you:


I kept the card very simple so as not to detract from the background or the silhouette of the fairy, and just mounted it to a white card base and added a embossed sentiment strip at the bottom (PTI's Keep It Simple: Birthday).  A little bit of black baker's twine finished off the card.

Lot's of time left to play along with this challenge, and you can find lots of inspiration from the DT right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
