Wings

Hello, Friends!


The newest challenge at Cards in Envy is called Wings.  We are making cards that feature something with wings.

Here's mine:

A2 sized card = 5.5" x 4.25"

I used a sketch from Mojo Monday when creating this card.  The bee is from the Silhouette Store and is mounted with foam tape. The background paper is all digital paper.


I was going to add a sentiment like "You're the Bees Knees", but really couldn't decide where to add it.  It just didn't look right on the banners.
