Things With Wings

Happy Easter! Hope you haven't been overdosing on the chocolate and making yourselves sick ... lol!!

Today my card is my DT card for International Art and Soul. The theme is "Things With Wings" and that covers such a wide spectrum - birds, butterflies, dragonflies, fairies, angels ........  We hope that you will join in with our challenge this time.  We are a Just For Fun challenge blog so no prizes, but you can take our lovely banner if you win.

Please scroll down to previous post if you are looking for my Christmas Card Club card.

My Card

My 6 inch square card was made with ivory card stock from my stash and the dark taupe is Bazill Basics. The backing paper was found a couple of months ago when I was sorting through masses of stuff so that John could put me some new shelving in.  I have no idea where it is from but it suits todays card perfectly. I computer generated the quote and used Spellbinders Labels 16 to diecut. The butterflies were also in my stash drawer - Marianne Designs I think. Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts, ribbon is Papermania and the lace is from a local haberdasher.

After a pretty good day yesterday spent in the garden I now have quite a few aches and pains. The joys of growing older!  Today's forecast is rain so that means I can take a break and not feel guilty!  However, the sky looks pretty clear to me.  Ah well, I'll just wait and see.

Take care and enjoy the rest of the Easter weekend.
