Mid-month inspiration for Buckwells challenge: things with wings

Our challenge theme this month is 'things with wings' and we're being sponsored by:

Also for 4 more lucky winnerswill each receive a set of Micro Dots Digi Papers and Checkout Digi Papers from Lozzy

I used Ching Chou Kuik's lovely butterfly digi from Sweet Pea Stamps - a lovely image that has been created in a zentangle style.

  5. Lovely card Hazel, love the cluster of flowers above the bow. Thanks for sharing your art on the Craft-Dee BowZ June challenge!

  6. Must admit I wasn't sure when I first looked at this card but you know what Hazel the more I look the more I like it. There are so many subtle elements that first glance you miss. I love how you have picked up the chequered design from the Zentangle image with the simple but oh so effective yellow check design paper background. Also love the soft colours on the butterfly picking up the colours from the cluster of flower. Yes. the more I look the more I don't just like but love it. Thankyou for fluttering by #33. hugs Mrs A.

  7. I think your card is fabulous Hazel, I love the Zen tangle design of the image and the lovely soft colours you used to colour it. The bunch of flowers at the side is gorgeous and I love the beautiful bow you tied them with. Great job.

  26. Great birthday make...I love the bouquet of flowers you added. What a blessing it is for us that you joined our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday last week and hope you join us again this week. I want to share the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 telling us, ” However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived”—the things God has prepared for those who love him—these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.” Have a blessed weekend…
