Wild Orchid Crafts - Wings Challenge

Hi everyone! I hope your weekend was wonderful! I had a very relaxing one with my hubby. 
Today I have a card to show you for the new Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge.  The theme is WINGS!  Now, let me tell you what happened to me.  Do you ever just go off into never, never land?  Well, that is what I did with this card.  I started with an image that had wings, then I thought, "well that blue doesn't really match too well, so I will trade it out with another image", not even remembering the "wings" theme. DUH!  So I added some butterflies.  That counts right?! haha!  

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  LOTV - Rosie Posy
Inks:  Distress Inks
Paper:  K&Co.

As you can see I used my fav lace again. I just can't seem to put it down. haha!

The girls have made some gorgeous cards and projects for this challenge, be sure to check it out! We are adding a few new rules to the challenge also, so make sure you pay close attention to those, they will be announced on the blog. We want every one's entry to count!  As you know, there is always a wonderful prize at the Wild Orchid Craft Challenge!

Have a super fantastic day! Thank you so much for visiting me today!

Hugs, Dena

    I too often change image halfway through or forget what I started out doing for a certain challenge, but you pulled this round fabulously. :)

    Shame I cant play on the WOC challenge this week, those new rules are a little harsh, so my entry didnt count when I came to link it up :(

    Im not too sure I could ever enter just 2 challenges anyway! LOL :)
