just for fun challenge card

happy thursday :)  one of my resolutions this year is to get back into challenge fun other than just DT work. so... this card is for the following challenges :
secret crafter saturday challenge :anything goes, with blue
the kraft journal: stamp it pretty
movingalongwiththetimes:things with wings
anythinggoeschallenge :anything goes
papercraftingjourney:floral
                                    
    i used kraft catdstock for the base of my cards which i purchased at the kraft outlet       i used a  cicely mary barker stamp for this one. i colored her in with prisma pencils. adding  just a touch of stickles to her wings. sorry for the poor photo its overcast here so my lighting really is crappy.
i also used a couple of pearls around the corners

i used my cricut and jasmine cartridge for these corners

for the background i just added in some dots and inked a bit with distress ink (weathered wood)



 this sentiment on the inside is from stephanie over at  whimsical designs. its from the set everyday sentiments


 thanks so much for having a look~see your comments leave me with a smile thanks so much for that!  have a crafty rest of day or evening :) xxx shelly
