Platypus Creek Challenge 11 - Things with Wings


Hello, Hello, Hello everyone! it seems like ages since I've posted!.  Well it has almost been a week!  To be honest with you, I've been a bit flat when it has come to my creating and desire to be in my craft room, and then over the weekend we had a house guest.  So it was just lovely to take a bit of time out and spend with family and friends.  I am still feeling a bit flat in general this morning (it might be the weather), for the first time in ages I went back to bed after taking Rod to work.  I am about to go and make a cup of coffee and see if that wakes me up.

Anyway today I have a card to share with colors I am sure would wake you up!   I have made it for the latest challenge over at Platypus Creek Digitals.  The theme this week is Things with Wings, so I have used the delightful Blue Jay Digi from the store as it reminded me of all the wonderful little wrens, fantails and willy wag tails we have in our garden here at home.



For my card I am using up some paper scraps.  I had a left over piece from another project where I had cut out a scalloped oval which fitted my card front perfectly (needed a bit of a trim) and the bright colored piece has been in my scrap pile for some time now so I simply layered this behind the oval cut out.  The sentiment is a American Crafts Rub On.

I do hope you will join in the fun of our challenge this week, just think, birds, butterflies, fairies, dragons, bugs, there truly are lots of things with wings and it can be used as your image, or embellishment on your project.

For more inspiration and to link your project head over to the Platypus Creek Digitals Blog where Tracey also has a wonderful freebie for you too!  The freebie the Love Dove would be perfect for you to play along with our challenge with.

Anyway I am off to grab that coffee, I hope you all have a wonderful day!
