Buckwells crafts challenge: things with wings

This is my design card for this month's Buckwells crafts challenge: things with wings. Please click on the link to see all the lovely designs of the rest of the team and we would love you to join in our challenge.

For June's Challenge we have the lovely Lynette from Sweet Pea Stamps as one of the sponsors and Lozzy from Buckwell crafts.

Lynette is kindly offering one of the randomly chosen winners 4 of her beautiful images (winners choice). Hope you pop over and take a look at all of gorgeous Rubber Stamps and digi images that you will find at Sweet Pea Stamps.

Unfortunately, there is sad news for Buckwell crafts fans because this month is the last challenge.

For my card I used Janna Prosvirina's 'hot chocolate fairy' digi, which I coloured with chameleon pens, cutting out with an Xcut rectangular parathensis die, sponging with frayed burlap distress ink before removing the image from the die. This was then mounted on to some snowflake vellum, then on to a cream card blank. The hessian and wood and cork and wood butterflies were from Poundland.

Make sure to stop by and join us again in another Challenge starting tomorrow. Leaving you with God's Word in Colossians 3:23-24 which says, "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." Have a blessed day!
