Flying Things at FSC

A Happy Easter to you and I hope you haven't eaten too many Chocolate eggs!
It's time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping and this time we would like to see 'Flying Things'
How you interpret this is up to you - they don't have to be of the winged variety - they just have to fly.
We are again sponsored by Flonzcraft who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.  All the details and some fabulous inspiration can be found here, but remember -

We especially need to see that the stamping is the focal point on the project and that this must follow the format of the theme.

My tag started life a while ago when I was playing with paint and embossing paste and stencils, then put in a 'pile for later', so I'm not sure what colours are on here.  The corrugated card, was stamped  with  TH Papillion script in Faded Jeans DI before adding the TH butterflies from the same set.  The roses are made using the Tattered Florals strip die.

I am entering this at:
   Craftyhands - Anything Goes
   Totally Papercrafts - Tag It
   Red Rubber Inspirationals - Back to Nature
   Rhedd and Rosie - Anything Goes
   Simon says Monday Challenge - Winged things

Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Such lovely butterflies Avril! The weekend weather has seen quite a few of these beauties fluttering about in the gardens of Scotland much to my delight :-) can't say that I am so pleased about the amount of chocolate that my granddaughter left behind owing to lack of space in her suitcase though :-(

One of my favourite ever makes of yours, Avril - stunning blue green background and gorgeous gilded texture and the butterflies look fabulous over the corrugated card. Wonderful! (Have had that stamp sitting on some corrugated card on my desk for a while - will have to go another way now, no way I can top this!!)
