Come Fly With Me

Hello friends!
It's time once again for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters!
Diane is our hostess today and since March is noted as the 'Windy Month', she has asked us to 

by creating with something that FLIES.  
(i.e. planes, birds, balloons, fairies, angels ... etc.)

 I decided on Mini Butterflies and a Fairy for my card theme.
I must admit I love how it came together!
This card could be used for any number of occasions.

 Of course, I just HAD to add some sparkle to the fairies wings!
Just helps to bring forth the 'magical' aspect.
And, as you can see, I've been practicing making my own flowers again.
These were made with the Cheery Lynn Designs 'Gardenia Small' #B433 die strip.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun and I look forward to see what you choose as your 'flying' theme.  The team has come up with some fun creations ... be sure to pop over to see and then come play along.

Darlene this is just so pretty. I love all the dies you use. Gorgeous detail everywhere on this card!! You are making it very hard to try to stick to my no spending budget on crafting supplies. I have been wanting a flourish die forever and I love the one you used.
