Anniversary magic

Hi all wow how time just flies by and that must mean another sunday challenge from the One Stitch at a Time team.

This time I suspect as many of us are making summery cards that we will have loads of entries as our challenge is THINGS WITH WINGS. I don't mean that your projects have to have bugs on but they could be birds, planes, fairies, bats (do you think batman would count) well you get the idea.

For my card I got to play with a fab Floppy Latte image which if you want to play with it too you can find here along with lots of other beauties too. The image is so strong it took me a while to decide what I would do with it, I hummed and arred about adding colour to the background like a sunset or dusk but wasn't sure I would do the image justice so in the end I simply went over it with clear sakura glaze pen and added some sparkle to the wings.

I used it to make an anniversary card for some friends and decided to keep to the monochrome with a touch of silver. The flowers are made from punched daisies with liquid pearl centres and the butterfly is 3 peel-offs stuck together for dimension. The sentiment is also a peel-off. I am really pleased at how it turned out, have to say I do love the simple look style.
