Whimsical Wings

Hi everybody, it's another nice day.....if you're a duck!!!, so I'll just have to do some crafting indoors. I popped over to CAS-ualfridays blog, and what a challenge they have set today.

You had to choose 3 squares in a row vertically,horizontally,or diagonally, and make a card using whatever was displayed in those squares.  I decided to go diagonally from top right hand square ( emboss ), to bottom left hand square ( buttons) through the centre ( dies or punch).
I dug out one of my old favourite SU sets,Whimsical wings,and stamped the bird and flower image in Vibrant Primary colour Big n' Juicy ink onto SU Whisper White card, and then heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then put this image through my Big Shot with a scalloped circle die and embossed that. This was then mounted onto a square of turquoise card from my stash which had been through the Big Shot in a Cottage Floral embossing folder and I rounded the corners before mounting on a WW 6"x 6" card. The circle was stuck down off center so that a Woodware greeting could be stamped in the same ink pad onto a smaller scalloped circle of  WW, and placed in the bottom corner,above which I placed 3 blue buttons ( there is some string tied in a bow through the middle one). See what you think, sadly it's not easy to see the heat embossed image in the photo.

It's been a disapointing day in the tennis today because of the weather, but luckily the Grand Prix is in Canada this weekend so it should not be affected...........thank goodness!!
I may do some more playing soon so please pop back if you can spare the time and have a look.

Thanks very much for your time and comments. Bev.x
