PSC46:Missing Wings

Hey everyone...welcome back for another challenge with The Perfect Sentiment!! 

What a fun challenge we have in store for you this week...your creative task is to create a card with a sentiment of missing you (make sure your sentiment is on the front of the card) & the twist is to use something with wings on your card. This winged element can be something on the card stock you choose, your embellishment or in my case...actual wings : )

At first I had an idea in my head but I wasn't quite sure how to pull it off so I thought to myself...ah..I'll just "wing" it...haha..ok so that was a pretty lame joke but seriously here's my card for this week's challenge......

Ok..I have confession to make...I've been hoarding these wings..yes hoarding them. I picked these feathery beauties up at the Creating Keepsakes convention earlier this year and I LOVE them!! They are just so vintagy/shabby chic looking to me which is something I adore. But I knew they would work perfectly for this week's challenge. 

See what I mean????

The black bling just really pops off the page against the muted toned CS...which I think goes so well with the crumpled & distressed patterned paper I used for the base of this card. 

Who doesn't love some Prima matched up with some yummy twine from The Twinery. Don't you just love that yummy textured gold ribbon? 

Stamped sentiment in Tim Holtz's Broken China..goes so well with the gold ribbon which is from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I'm a member of their Ribbon Of The Month club and this was from the November 2011 assortment (ok so maybe I was hoarding this ribbon as well..haha).

To carry the look from the front to the inside...I cut a circle from the same patterned paper...distressed it and topped it off with a vintage wood button...twine & more of the gold ribbon. 

 Here's a closer look at the embelli I created...I love mixing vintage with new...such a unique look I think : )

Now are you ready for some inspiration from my fellow DT members....
