Wonderful Wings...

I am sharing a quick post with you today, things have been very busy here, the School Holidays are over and the teenagers are returning to College, Tutorials have to be done and Card Design Class kicks off tonight for 2013 - all good, but takes time - but you already know that - don't you! 

I have used the fabulous Spellbinders Wonderful Wings Spellbinders™  Grand Shapeabilities® and cut them using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine.   I usually sit and run a lot of these through using all of the scraps of card that gather on my desk - but you wouldn't have that happen - would you!? LOL!

My sentiment comes from a pack I purchased at BIG W some months back by Grace Taylor - precut sentiments etc - I usually like to stamp mine but there are times it comes in handy to have some of these.

The fabulous turquoise bling comes from Want2Scrap 
and add such a fabulous 'pop' of colour on the My Mind's Eye™ patterned paper.

This card is for the following challenges:
