INTAAS - Things with Wings

The challenge over at International Art and Soul is 'Things with Wings' chosen by design team member Christine. 

I'm not quite back into crafting, managing only an hour at a time so another simple card from me. Once again my photo is not up to scratch, my scanner is playing up for me so I've had to make do with the less than perfect image. 

My card blank is a scalloped 7x7 card by Crafts UK. I used Brushos on the actual card base as a sunny background to the actual mat. The muted green paper is from Costco and I've had a case of it for years. I cut it with a Spellbinders scalloped die and fixed it to the sunny background. The lace butterfly is by Craft Box UK but don't know where the small butterflies are from as I was given them by a friend. They were added to the bottom corners and then a small stamped 'Happy Birthday' was added, again cut with a Spellbinders scalloped die. The yellow card used to stamp the sentiment on is by Hobbycraft. The stamp was a freebie from a magazine many years ago.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Use a Birthday Sentiment
Creative Knockouts - Things with Wings or Furry Friends
Seize the Birthday - Birthday + Signs of Spring
Crafty Gals Corner - Spring or Easter
Craft Galore Encore - Anything Goes

INTAAS - Landscapes

Come along and join us at International Art and Soul with the challenge of 'Landscapes' set by design team member CraftyGirl.

This is the first card I've made for a few months due to my back problem which, I hope, is on the mend.
The photo is a bit lopsided but I hope you'll bear with me until I get back into the crafting groove!

The card blank is a 6x6 by /Craft UK. The green base mat card is by Hobbycraft, the dark green card is by WH Smith but I have no idea where I got the black glitter card which is the tiny border backing the image. The image was taken from Joanna Sheen's CD 'Dancing with Shadows'. After matting and layering I added some tiny green gems, from Mei Lower, to the left column. It's not a very adventurous card but it's not too bad considering it had to be made in as short a time as possible due to the said back!

I'm not sure whether I dare enter it into any challenges but here goes:

Crafting Happiness - Anything Goes
CD Sunday - Anything Goes with item from CD, USB , etc
Taylormadecards4u - Anything Goes with option Great Outdoors
