I didn't use wings on my card this week, but I did use up lots of bits and pieces.  The black card that I used for the die cuts was an odd piece that was left over from other projects and wasn't really enough to make a card with.

I used Samantha by Annie Rodrigue and coloured her with my Copics, I decided to make her a redhead this time using a combination of E13, E18, E19 and E35. I paper pieced her outfit with some small scraps that were left over after making the card.

The black tulle I used around the frame was a small length that's been sitting in my stash since halloween lol and the ribbon was left over from a card I made in February, there was just enough left for this card.  I used an odd button and a bit of recyled black twine.

 I decorated the inside with the paper that was left over from the front, it required a little creative cutting and placement but I managed, and the red dots were all I had left from another project, I had to mix and match sizes a bit but it seems to work


  1. Absolutely fabulous Linda. Just love your image and all the scrummy layers.
