Crafty Secrets #128 - Things With Wings

Good Afternoon Everyone!

I have my outside work all done (before it got too hot) and now it's time to share & play!!  I have an order for a couple boxes of notecards, but before I get started on those, I would like to share with you my creation for today's SCS Crafty Secrets Forum Challenge (hosted by mwah) and the theme is "Things With Wings".  
 (click image to enlarge)
I have chosen to used images from the Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps - Altered Fairies.  I also used some scraps that were laying on my worktable for my background panels.  The moth looking butterfly in the left corner was actually cut out from a piece of Crafty Secrets Earthy designer paper and I added Crystal Effects to the top to make it a little more realistic. I'm very happy with the end result ... what do you think??

The addition of various embellishments, i.e. lace from Joan's Gardens, a paper heart, MS butterfly punched from dp and Basic Grey Opaline pearls ... helped to give it a "vintage collage" appeal.  

Thanks for stopping by again today ... it means more to me than I can express!  Happy Stamping!!
