Craft Your Days Away #2

Morning everyone and a HUGE thank you to everyone who took part in our first challenge over at CYDA.  We were completely blown away by your support and the amazing number of entries we had.  We are now onto our second challenge and it's the turn of my lovely teamie Lisa to set the theme and she's chosen something you're sure to love.  This time we'd like to see

"With Wings"

I couldn't resist using one of my favourite "Pixie Chick" digital images from Charmed Cards and Crafts for this (available to download HERE).  I've used BG papers and a lovely deep red cardstock.  The flourish is my new sizzlits set I've been playing with - and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it lol!  I used my nesties to mat the image and sentiment.  The sentiment is also available to down from Charmed on the same page as the image.  I edged the page with some gorgeous fancy ribbon I picked up from Hobbycraft.  Everything else is from my stash.

Please visit the challenge blog at CYDA here for sponsor details and don't forget to check out the awesome creations from my team mates.
I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges.....

Dottie's World - Your Favourite Charmed One 
Stamp Something - Use Something Digi 
Paper Cutz - Anything Goes
Moving Along Times - Glitter
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
