Winged heart

Good evening crafty people.

I have been wanting to use these little gold paper wings for a long time and either I hadn't seen how I could use them on a project or I had forgotten about them, so having found them I decided to have a go at using them in a design. I used a layout from another card I had seen and put my own twist on it.

The music paper I use comes from some old clarinet and piano music books that I found at a carboot sale, and I just love using them. Mixed with some pink backing paper and stripe paper I think it looks really good on this card. The frame is another I made myself using the Spellbinders rectangles. You know when you have done something 'wrong' and then experimented to change it? Well this is what happened here. I covered the frame in my usual glitter I like to use and then realised I had planned to use a different colour and had forgotten that as I was beavering away. So I got out my Cosmic Shimmer iridescent mica pigment powders and rubbed golden plum all over it. Eh voila, a sparkly and shimmery frame in a pink rather than a sparkly aurora borealis glitter. Not bad eh???

I used a Rubber Stampede text stamp on the stripy pink paper at the top and gold embossed the crown from the TH Shabby French collection. The heart was cut using the Cricut and glittered, the butterfly is a MS punch and the birdcage is a free image I downloaded from the internet, both have been covered in Glossy Accents. I also used Cosmic Shimmer aqua twinkles around the edge of the frame and pink backing paper. Finally a pink ribbon to set it off.

I hope you like this little creation, another experiment with the Shabby Chic style.

Have a great week, mine is hectic!!!
