Any Winged Creature

This week at Flutter By Wednesday, our theme is the ever popular "ANY" winged creature. This means that you can use anything on your card as long as it has wings -- dragonflies to angels, dragons to flying kitties (LOL)! My image this week is from The Paper Shelter and is called "Anyone Can Fly." Isn't it just the cutest? (I know, I say that about a lot of the images I use -- think there is a trend there?).

I fell in {heart} with this image for several reasons. First, the little fairy girl is totally charming. Second, I'm a kitty fancier, so anything with a kitty is going to grab at my heart strings. Third, I thought the title of the image was rather metaphorical because I really believe that with the right encouragement, everyone has the potential, not to actually fly, but to soar to whatever achievement their heart truly wants.

My card base, this time, is green card. I've added a layer of yellow matting and then green and yellow DP. My image is colored with Copic markers, cut into a square and double matted with yellow and green card. The doily behind my image is cut using Cheery Lynn Design Swedish Spring Oval Frame (FRM135 from Dutch Paper Crafts). I've added pearls to the doily and also to the corners of the green DP. The yellow ribbon, bow and flower finish off my simple little card. The sentiment, "I knew you could" was computer generated and cut using a Spellbinder circle die and then a slightly larger circle cut with a Creative Memories punch.

I do hope you will join us this week at Flutter By Wednesday. We've not seen as many of you lately, and we sure have been missing you. You are as much of an inspiration to us as we (hope) we are to you. If we get 50 entries, there will be a special prize for one lucky random draw winner.
