Week 144 - Spread your Wings

Good Morning Everyone,

I am hoping this finds everyone well and happy and have enjoyed the last couple of lovely Spring days. 
Today's card is my design that I have popped onto the Allsorts Challenge blog this week.

I have used the stunning decoupage from Joanna Sheen's Giordano collection.  The detail is amazing and if you love your cutting out decoupage, as I do, this will be right up your street.
I decided to marry it up with the beige, golden and brown colour scheme which I really like.  The brown dot paper is Bo Bunny the other paper that I used was out of my stash.  As you can see I have used Tim Holtz distress tool and vintage photo distress ink to really vintage it up. 
Pop over to the Allsorts Challenge site and have a look at the gorgeous cards from the design team and it would be lovely if you could join in too!  Please bear in mind that the wings need to be included in the main image of the design.  There are some fabulous prizes up for grabs from Crimson Cloud @
Thank you for popping by and having a peep, I would love it if you left a message.
Enjoy a lovely weekend whatever you are planning.
Bye for now
