Welcome fellow bloggers, crafters and most importantly, friends.
It seems like ages since I have blogged a Design Team piece for LEJ Designs. I had to skip the last challenge due to being on Holibobs. I had such a lovely relaxing time, I didn't want to come home!
This weeks Challenge theme is...
'Things With Wings'.
Now, this could be insects, animals, mythical creature or mechanical wings etc...let your imagination and creativity flow.
Every weekly challenge has a first prize of wonderful LEJ Designs Images, as well as a small second crafty prize. Our crafty prizes are provided by one of our amazing sponsors.

Right, here is the card I made for the challenge.
I decided against using one of the gorgeous images. I used one of the backing papers and sentiment (both available in the LEJ Designs shop).
I imported the backing paper and sentiments into SERIF Craft Artist and changed the colour.
I then used a Kanban stamp set 'tropical birds' to stamp over the background with two Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
I stamped the small butterfly stamp around the sentiment and distressed the edging.
I stamped the humming bird onto a separate piece of card, painted this with the same distress ink and then cut the image out.
I used clear embossing powder to heat emboss the bird.
I used an x-cut die for the sentiment edging, and then a border die, which I added a length of ribbon to.
I finished this card off with some purple and black flat backed gems, as well as a strip of the backing paper inside the card.
I loved getting inky fingers while making this card, and was shocked that I didn't get finger prints all over it.
I hope this card has inspired you to join in with the challenge. We love looking at everyone's makes and how talented people are.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
