BBB24 - The Beauty of Winged Things

Hello everyone!
Well, it's been a while since I last posted and I'm glad to be back!

It's time for another Bring Back Beautiful Challenge over at Flourishes...this month, the theme is...

The Beauty of Winged Things! Birds, butterflies, even lady bugs -- let your
creativity flow on this challenge aimed at honouring those creatures with wings on your card or creation! 
Link up your Bring Back Beautiful Challenge creations on the Flourishes Blog to enter.  If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB24.  You have until July 31st to enter!  As we unveil our challenge for next month, we'll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge!  Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog.  A big welcome to Geri who won last month's Flourishes challenge and joins us this month on the BBB Challenge team!

Anyway, here is what I came up with:
I used Flourishes' Sweet Days of Summer stamp set and stamped the main image using yellow ink.  The butterflies are a separate stamp from the same set.  I cut out the main image using Spellbinders Floral Ovals and sponged using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Pumice Stone.  I added some pearls to the die-cut and mounted it  over some beautiful patterned papers which had been embellished with a seam binding bow, a pearl, and a gorgeous Crystal Trinket Pin.  The sentiment, which is also from Sweet Days of Summer, was stamped in dark grey ink.

Anyway, I am looking forward to seeing all of your beautiful entries!

Please visit the other gals to and see what beautiful creations they came up with this month:
