Something with wings at the colour challenge

Good afternoon friends,
Alittle late with my posting, but I braved the shopping mall for a few items I still had to get....so pleased I could escape quickly.

Tuesday is the Colour challenge at The Outlawz and this week the colours and inspirational photo was chosen by Teresa, who loves birds and has gorgeous parrots, so it isn't surprising that the twist is "add wings"




 


 Our sponsor is Digi my world with a gift certificate for the winner.
                                              





I invite you to go and have a look at the lovely cards made by the DT, and if you want to have a break from all the Christmas preparations, then come and join us...would love to see you there.

For my card I used a Craftyindividuals stamp that has butterflies and a bird on it. I punched a butterfly and mounted it on the larger one, and I added some glitter to the bird with a gem for the eye.
The yellow cardstock I put through the cuttlebug with a butterfly folder. Finished it off with pearls, a button and some twine. Not too fussy, but I quite like the look of it.

I am going to enter some challenges:
Artistic Inspirations #20...Anything goes
My Grafico challenges #142...Anything goes
Squigglefly challenge #50...Anything goes with a sentiment
Addicted to stamps...Bingo..I used the centre row down,,button, embossed, clean & simple
Eclectic Ellapu challenge #10...Anything goes
Papelitos stamps challenge #24...Anything goes
That's all for today

I wish you all a wonderful week, take some to catch your breath, and see you back here soon.
Take care and have fun, love Ursula

I love the blue and yellow color combination on this. I like the way you used the twine on this too, and your little butterfly is the sweetest! Thanks for playing in Squigglefly's challenge this week!
