Spread Your Wings

My apologies for being late getting my post up.  Hubby and I went out to dinner and things last night and I didn't get it done before we went to bed.  Set the alarm to get up and get it done this morning before it went live and hubby turned the alarm off before I heard it - So I overlspet!

Anyway, here I am and.....

Here we are, with a new challenges at Catch The Bug! Our theme, this week, is "Things With Wings."  This one is always fun! I love working with winged images for some reason, so I had a blast with this one!  If you like things with wings, play along with us and take a chance at winning some awesome images from Bugaboo Stamps!

My project uses the image, Bugaboo Brats bugs - Girl ladybug, from Bugaboo Stamps. I used the sketch from Sassy Studio Designs as my card layout.  The paper lace doily is from my stash.  I cut it in half, then used ribbon and diamond stars for embellishing.  I've colored the image with Promarkers, and accented the matting with silver pearls. The sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and punched with circle punches. The purple panel is embossed with swirls, using the Cuttblebug. I sponged around the image, to make less white space.

I made this card for a friend, to give her stepmom for Mother's Day.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
