Hi to all,
   Big hugs and thankyou for visiting.
   WELL!   Here is my first card as a Design Team Member for Whimsical Designs.
   I can't believe how nervous I feel...The Challenge on Whimsical Wednesdays is "Time Flies" to make a card or project and include either wings or a clock on it.
   Use your own interpretation of this.
   I decided to use wings (butterflies) no image today as I wanted the lovely sentiment to take centre stage. these wonderful sentiments can be found HERE.
   You will find a sentiment for any occasion I'm sure.
   PLEASE play along with us. I can't wait to see what you have come up with and check out what my DT buddies have created. (We all love feedback)
  





My Recipe for this card is as followed;
Papers DCWV/ The Spring Mattstock
DCWV Cardstock Neutrals
Marianne Createble Fancy Circle
Spellbinders Circle
Spellbinders Impressabilities- Butterfly
Spellbinders- Fleur De Lis Square
Magnolia Sprig Die

Ribbon from stash
