OWH MWT - things with wings!

The challenge this week over at OWH is to create something with wings. I was gifted with these butterfly embellishments a few weeks ago, and around the same time I also picked up the DCWV Mariposa stack, which has some beautiful butterfly/bird designs. I've been pondering how to use them together for awhile now, but other things have gotten in the way. When I saw the challenge, I went immediately to grab both and see what I could create!

I wasn't sure at first about the mix of colors but now that it's done... I really like it! What do you think? Does it work?

Card recipe:
DCWV - Mariposa mat stack, blue, black, and gold pieces are scraps
EK success edge punch
Recollections embellishment
Labels 8 Nestie

Thanks for looking! You can play along here and remember, the shippers are desperately in need of more "Dad" cards. Won't you help? If 10 of us all sent in 10 cards this week, that's 100 more happy Dads!

  2. Nicely done! I also have the DCWV Mariposa matstack but haven't had a chance to create with it yet. I like your "bling" giving the butterfly motion.
