Flying Without Wings...

well here goes...

I took inspiration for this card from Quick Cards Magazine issue 95.

The papers were donated to me (by a very nice friend),
when I first began this creative streak (approx 5 months ago).
The cardstock is by Papermania, 
the heart-shaped paperclip and buckle were cut on my cricut (oh how I love this machine).
I created the 3D effect of eyes by using pink Pearly Stuff by Woodware.
A lovely pale emerald brad from my stash.
The ribbon and pearls were also found in my stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges :

  Top Tip Tuesday - challenge 67   - anything goes

Anything goes challenge 58  - anything goes

2 Sisters challenge 74  - use metal

Thanks for popping by...

Keep Calm and Craft... xx
