#181 Things with Wings @ The Crafty Pad

Good morning Beautiful people! 

Sunday has rolled around again and it is time for a new challenge at 
The Crafty Pad! 

This week it is the delicious Debbi's turn and she has picked a theme that I am sure you are all going to love ... 
#181 Things With Wings 

I feel like I am repeating myself here but I just could not resist playing with The Crafty Pad's Butterfly and Verse Border set. I just adore this set! It is beautiful and so many ideas flood into my mind when I see it and today I used it for a card. 

I just adore the swirly frame (that is a Marinne Design Creatable - LR0016, it is actually a rectangle die but I cut it twice in the bigshot, then cut both frames in half giving me 4 pieces and just cut off some swirls and played around with them around my diecut verse.  If you look real close at the top and bottom of the sides scrolls you can see where they overlap but it still looks good! 


Lots of pearls today! The EK Success swirl punch even got a chance to come out and play and the papers, flower and twine are all from my scraps pile.  Feel a little sad at the blue paper down the side as it is the last piece from my last Stampin Up Spree and I just love the design!

Our wonderful sponsor this week is:
who is kindly offering £10 online Gift Voucher

 While I feel like I could sit here and talk to you all day, that is it for me. 
 Do stop by and share some love with The Crafty Pad Girls, they have some stunning pieces of work to share with you and get you inspired as well. 
We would love you to play along with us and we hope to see you there :)

Oh this is quite simply stunning, I am not normally a verse user as centre stage yet I absolutely loved using it for this coming week's MAWTT challenge. Beautifully embellished and I love how you used the die cut pieces.
