Simply Sunday Challenge - Winged Things

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you are having a great weekend! It's time for another fun Simply Sunday challenge at Getting Cricky! The theme this week is Winged Things.
For this card, I used my new Elegant Edges cartridge and Fancy Pants Design "It's The Little Things" paper from my friend Sherrie of Sherrie Scraps With Passion! Isn't the paper gorgeous? The flowers are from the same line. Thank you again, Sherrie! This cart has such fun shapes, I had a hard time choosing which to use. I used my Gypsy to weld two shadows together to create the base of the card, cut at 5". I attached the frame with foam tape to give dimension. The swirl is from Sophisticated, cut at 1 1/2" and also attached with foam. I added a strip of pearls and pearls on the corners and the flower centers.
I used a sheet of notepaper from the "It's the Little Things" paper stack for the sentiment and cut it with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Die. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress Ink and attached it with foam tape. The sentiment, one of my favorites, was created with the awesome mix and match K Andrew Winged Things stamp set. I am entering the card in the Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - School Papers.

I love this stamp set so much, I had to create two cards!
For this card, I used beautiful handmade paper that my friend Diana of DL.ART sent to me! This paper is so gorgeous! The red paper has raised hearts and for the light pink, I embossed it with the hearts Cuttlebug folder. Thanks again, Diana! The red shiny paper which I used as the base and for the heart is from my friend Shen of My Curious Crafts! It is so sparkly and beautiful! Thanks again, Shen! I also used ribbon that my friend Karen of Little Scrap Pieces sent to me! She makes and hand dyes this ribbon and it is so awesome! Thanks again Karen!
I cut the wings from Gypsy Wanderings at 2 1/2" first on cardboard. The heart is from George and Basic Shapes and I added a strip of crystals.
I used Spellbinders Nestabilities dies for the sentiment and added a few gems for decoration. I am entering the card in the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge - Inspiring Words.

All of the stamps I used today are from the K Andrew Designs Winged Things set. At least $1 from the sale of every set directly benefits the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. Buy these stamps with pride, knowing not only are you getting a great product, but you are helping those in need!

  26. Lisa, my dear friend... I saw these cards shortly after you posted them, but couldn't get back until now. I seriously thought about them on and off all day because I love them *that* much. Both takes on the theme are elegant and gorgeous, with countless touches of beauty woven in. Among my fave parts are the pearl-studded flourish, the opposite b/w flowers, the shiny red heart, and the tiny sparkles nestled in the red tag. But I could seriously go on and on. These are masterpieces. Thank you so much for playing along with us at Whimsical Wednesdays!

    And I must say one more thing. Want to know what intensifies the beauty of these creations? The fact that so many components as far as execution came from your crafty friends. How beautiful is that? :o) Okay, I'll hush up now! ;) Thank you for giving me such exquisite cards to reflect on today!

    Hugs and blessings! :o)
