Wonderful Wings

Hello my friends.

Edited to add that this card was chosen a Favorite at Happy Little Stampers.



There's a new challenge over there. Why not give it a try?



Look what I found in my UFO box this time.


So I thought I'd make another card for 

Curtain Call shows this inspiration.

Can you tell that this design was cut down?
I'm not sure if that makes it a snippet.
This piece was in my UFO box after all.
I'm pretty sure that it started out to be a whole card front.
Some of it ended up in the trash.
So I'm off to
I've been missing my playmates there.


I'm so glad you could stop by.

Enjoy!
