Imagine being able to fly...



Using Jasmin, Medium Bee, Big Bee (wings)and Imagine Definition , all from Stampotique Originals, I created this little notecard, 4" x 4".

Wings and flight seem to be popular themes at the moment on the challenge sites, inparticularly I've had Gingersnap Creations Wings theme in my head for some time now so here's my contribution for that. At the weekend, Lots To Do revealed their theme as Bird/Wings so this also fits that nicely too. :0)

Talking of wings, this little card is winging its way onto an online friend...hope its a nice suprise when it reaches its destination.
I've also just realised that having visited Lotties blog last night her wallet must have really stuck with me whilst making this....thankyou Lottie for the inspiration as those background bees and the colours must have still been dancing round my head when putting my card together.

This is gorgeous, and would you mind if I have a go at it please. Of course I won't use the same colours or even be able to do it as good as you, but as I have the stamps I really would love to try out the style.
