Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #100 - Winged Things

Welcome to our latest challenge (woohoo, which happens to be our 100th), hosted by Viv ,who has chosen the theme Winged Things. 

Viv would like to see Winged Things. Something with wings as a major focal point. Not a tiny butterly charm, or a small bee in the corner of an image, the wings need to be obviously part of the focal point. Fairies, angels, LARGE butterflies, birds etc. would qualify. Please check out my teamies for some more inspiration.

I have used an image by Saturated Canary called 'Sweater Socks', she is just adorable and I have  coloured her with a mix of Flex and Promarkers.

It took me a while to find a purple combination I was happy with but finally I found orchid, Wild Orchid and Purple worked nicely together, my other attempts have been binned!!!

I cut her out using a fancy blade on my trimmer and layered onto different shades of purple card, which is from The Paper Mill.

The backing paper is First edition "Spring Drop'.I added a rose from Wild Orchid Crafts and some flowers from my stash which I added gems to.
The ribbon is 2 small left over bits that I tied together.

Finally I added some swirls cut with a memory box die, and Spellbinders butterfly to which I added some pink and blue ink with my ink dusters.
