Things With Wings

Good morning! It's Saturday which means that it's challenge day at 2 Sisters. It is also our very first challenge with the new design team! Be sure to check out their blogs and help us give them all a warm welcome and check out the gorgeous cards they created.  You can find a link to each blog in my sidebar or in the sidebar on the challenge blog.

This week we are being sponsored by..........

Our theme this week is......

The image I used is called  SYMPATHY.  I started with a sage green card base.  I added a piece of light blue card stock backed in white card stock.  Then I added a strip of striped card stock with a piece of white punched card stock added to the bottom.  I added that across the middle. 

I colored the image using crayola and prisma color pencils.  I cut it out in an oval and added it to sage green card stock.  Then again to white card stock. I cut around it using scallop scissors.  I added the image to the center of the card.  I layered four paper flowers on top of each other (white, gray, blue and pink) and added a white pearl to the center.  I stamped the sentiment "with sympathy" onto the bottom corner and added three white pearls to the upper corner.

I am entering my card into the following challenges....

Incy Wincy: Anything Goes

Top Tip Tuesday: Anything Goes

Pile It On: Anything Goes

Sentimental Sundays: Anything Goes
