Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 4 - Things with wings

Hi everyone, Friday again, where are the weeks going?! I had some brilliant news yesterday as I won Bev's fantastic anniversary blog candy! I still can't believe it, having to pinch myself as there were nearly 1300 entries and I'm thrilled to bits. If you don't know Bev's blog (but I'm sure you do!), then pop over there as you'll find loads of inspiration. Bev is a lovely lady and makes the most beautiful cards and gifts but most of all is such a supportive friend and blogger. Thanks Bev and postie stalking starts Saturday!

On to our 4th Challenge at Dare U 2 Digi Stamp and this week the theme is 'Things with wings' which could be a winged character on your digi image, things with wings in the pattern of your paper, a charm, etc., I'm sure that there are lots more. Hope you can join us this week, it was great visiting everyone's blogs for the pink and green theme and there were some really fun entries too that made me laugh with some interesting images!

I hope you haven't been blinded by the brightness of my card today as I've used the new BasicGrey Lime Rickey papers and coloured my 'Vicki Shops' image (soon to be available in the digi shop) to match the paper, she's very psychadelic! If you get your magnifying glass out when you've taken off your shades you'll be able to see that there's a butterfly brooch on Vicki's lapel, it's also glittered so not too clear what it is but it is there! The image is coloured with markers and layered on pale yellow Bazzil that I've edged with scallop scissors. I've added some punched flowers from the pp with gem centres and an Elzybells sentiment. Well nearly the weekend and no doubt the nice weather will disappear by the end of today! See you tomorrow with my BasicGrey card. TFL. Chris x

Firstly Chris can I congratulate you on your candy win - woohoo, how fab!
Secondly, your card is gorgeous! I must admit that particular Lime Rickey pattern scared me a bit, lol, but now I've realised you just have to go with something a bit snazzy. This card would be perfect for a teenager I think.
Have a lovely weekend ;o) xx
