Be Happy

Time for a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy!
Our lovely hostess is Annie and she has chosen the theme
'Things With Wings'.

Our sponsor is Sweet Lilac Flowers.


Now a lot of things come to mind for that theme,
but I chose a pretty and delicate bird die I had purchased
and had on my 'want list' forever it seems.

While getting together with a group of friends, 
one of them had this die and let us each cut one from white card stock.
It was so pretty I just had to have it,
so when I won that gift certificate over at the Cottage Cutz blog
and they had the half off sale and all, I was able to get my hands on it!


I used a 'real' paper doily I have had in my stash for ever it seems,
added a few flowers I layered together, it seems so good to use some of
these things up.

I also added a few gold sequins and a little resin heart.

No head on over to the Fussy and Fancy blog
and see the other beautiful 'things with wings' creations,
the Design Team has created.....join in the challenge with us!

Entering the following challenges"
Creative Knockouts .... Die Cuts/Punches
Word Art Wednesday .... ATG

Love that bird! I would have to have it, too. Your colors are beautiful and I love how you arranged on the doily. I have a few of those that need to be used, as well. Would you believe I do not have a single doily die? I should probably do something about that!

OMG this is so pretty Diane! I have that same bird die and don't think I've ever used it ... (thanks for inspiration)! AND, these colors look like they'd work perfectly for another upcoming challenge we share in ... hmmmm ... wheels turning! LOL
Hope you're having a great time at the north house!
