Good Morning

     Hi friends!  This Tuesday's challenge with Shining the Light at Our Daily Bread Designs is Wing It!  We want to see anything with wings!  Here are my wings.
Linda Carson, ODBD
 
     I chose to use the Sparrow image and the Sparrow die for my wings.  I cut an additional sparrow in the base color as a shadow to offset the colored image.  An Elegant Oval die was used for the sparrow.
     The sentiment and die are from this month's new release Glory and Vintage Labels.   The patterned papers are also new this month, Rustic Beauty Collection.   I chose to do some paper pleating on the bottom of the card.  You can find tutorials on SCS for pleating.
     For more inspiration and beautiful ways to use this month's release please visit my design team sisters:
 
   
     To see all of the artwork in one place or join in on the challenge click here.  You have until Sunday, May 11th to enter.
     Hope you'll find your wings and join in the fun!!  Have a wonderful day!
