Anything with wings at Alphabet Challenge

Hi Folks,

Its time for another Alphabet Challenge and this time its 'A' and we're asking for Anything - With Wings, so a nice easy one to start the Alphabet with.
For my DT piece I have used the JustRite Background Stamp.  I had a little play a while before Christmas and did a few pieces with the 'Caught in Crystal' technique, and the pieces have been waiting to be used. This one was matted onto black and then cream cardstock.
I stamped an extra butterfly on acetate, which was coloured on the reverse with Treasure Gold, and the organza ribbon was given the heat treatment to make it shrivel!
The rest of the DT have sone wonderful inspiration for you, so please pop over here to take a look.

I am entering this at:
  Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
  Divas By Design - Love & Romance
  Anything Goes - Vintage/Shabby Chic
  Simon Says Stamp & Show - Anything Messy
  Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Anything Goes
  Tuesday Throwdown - Anything Goes

Thats it for now, have a great weekend whatever you're doing.

Avril xx

Sublime colours. They are intense but at the same time a wonderful vintage air to them.
