Hallmark Scrapbook "Wings" Challenge and Day 23

This week's challenge over at Hallmark Scrapbook is to do a card with "wings". Could be a butterfly, bird, or whatever using any cartridge. I've been dying to cut the bird from Indy Art and also wanted to try out my new Wildcard. I cut the doily shaped card at 6". The shadow of the bird and 2 sets of clouds from Paper Pups were welded using Design studio as a base for the design. I then cut more clouds (at 3") in both shadow and regular, cuttling the top clouds with D'vine Swirls and chalking the edges. The layers were popped for dimension. The bird is also cut at 3" using the regular and blackout features. The tummy is chalked lightly and pink rhinestones were added for bling and a blue one for the eye. The pink chipboard heart is Melissa Francis and the card stock is My Mind's Eye, Bazzill, and BoBunny. The ribbons, fiber, flowers and stickpin add a slighly "shabby" feel which I love. I suppose this could be a Valentine, but I think I'm going to save it to give to my MIL for Mother's Day. (How great to be ahead of the game for once. LOL) I am not however ahead of the game for Jen's Card a Day Challenge as this should have been posted yesterday. :-) Be sure to stop by Hallmark Scrapbook and check out what others have done, and also to Jen's Blog to see her beautiful creations.
