You’re the Best

SOS 466 – Spread Your Wings

A new stamp set from StampinUP and some pretty paper found online set the stage for this card. I have wings all over this card so it is perfect for this challenge. Once I had stamped the bird image, I coloured it using Inktense pencils and a little Sakura Glaze for eyes, feet and beak. I used a nesting die set by Sizzix to cut the circles. Using foam to pop it up I set it aside until the rest was ready. In a search for some dragonfly paper a while ago I came across this pretty design and thought it would make a good background here. I added it to a black layer and then to the card front. Added the Circle layer, some embellishments and a small paper butterfly. Using a label die from MFT I cut the background piece for the sentiment and added the white layer to that after stamping. Sentiment is from Itty Bitty Basics by MFT. I added more embellishments and a tiny bow before I called it finished.

    1. I’ve had those crimped paper butterflies forever and still have a few to use. I often think I could make them as I have a crimper. Must try one of these days.


  1. Love the dragonfly patterned paper for your main image. Great coloring on your bird and flower stem. The small bow is very complimentary to the colors in the flowers. OMG…I almost missed the butterfly….lovely fluttery card.
