SSIC Spread Your Wings

This weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge is hosted by the ever sweet Miesje, who has chosen this scripture from Corinthians

Because the loaf of bread is  one, we, though many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.
1 Corinthians 10:17

Miesje has given us a recipe for this weeks challenge - choose at least 3 of the following for one card. (ribbon, button, a swirl, hat pin, brad, charm, popped up image)

I love this Little Dreams set from Darkroom Door and haved wanted to use this image since I got it - now seems like a good time - I have stamped a seperate wing and popped it up on foam tape, colouring lightly with SU Chalks/Pastels and added some 3D Kindy Glitz

and added a homemade stock pin - I am loving these - a BIG thank you to my dear Stampin' Sister Sistah Sabrina for introducing me to them in a gorgeous RAK - Sabrina I have saved them and use them sparingly - no jewellery is safe at our house!  LOL!

  1. WOW Linda, this is such a great card. Love the hatpin! The colors are amazing and the glitter is so eye catching. Have a terrific week filled with God's blessings.

  2. WOW Linda, this is stunning!! I do love your gorgeous hat pin too, Sabrina is so talented with those! But I am captivated by this stamp you used and how you did the wings... and added the brads. It's awesome!! Love the soft touch of color on her cheeks. What a beautiful creation. How are you eyes? I know it's been quite a while now since your surgery--are they still hard on you when at your computer? I hope not. And I hope you and your family have a great week! You're in my prayers.
