Wings!

It's friday and that can mean only one thing! A new Daring Cardmakers challenge to dare all you cardmakers to try something different. This weeks is no exception. Jane set us a dare to incude wings on a card. As Ive had a mega busy week I made this one based of a card I'd done before. It uses hero arts & firefly stamps and one that came free with Craft Stamper.
To be honest I felt it was a bit of a cop out and it wasn't anything new for me, so when my Phoebe papers arrived from ATDML I decided to use them straight away and somehow found an extra hour. They are just gorgeous, I love the retro shapes and the funky floral designs *drool*

This second card is rather tenuously linked to wings through the quote which I really like. It seems to be attributed to so many different people on the internet I'm really not sure who first wrote it. I spaced the text how I wanted it in Photoshop and then printed it onto Acetate to make an overlay. Its only attached to the card with the brads through the middle of the flowers but its really secure. I just love these colours together, so pretty.
There are an amazing array of cards on the Dare Blog this week and a givaway, so if you haven't joined in yet, its the perfect time to give it a go.

Happy Creating!
