Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge #74 Things with Wings


I had a few extra minutes this morning to play, and when I saw the challenge over at the Speedy the Cat blog, I knew I had to play along.  My challenge entering has been to a minimum lately, due to the wedding planning, sorry.  Here is my take on the "Things with Wings" challenge.

I created a matchbook style card in monochromatic tones.  The colors are pure white and rich razzleberry.  The Mark's Finest set that I used for my bird is called Tropical Vacation.  I just love this set and all of its sayings!  I cut out my bird using one of the Spellbinders, Fancy Tags Three dies.  The leaves and sentiment are popped, and purple pearls are added as accents.

I may just be able to add slip this into the bride and grooms suitcase, before they whisk away on their tropical honeymoon!

Have a wonderful Saturday, everyone!
