Fashionista's Winged Challenge

Note: Last call for my July Christmas blog candy - click here and scroll down for details. (you do not need to be a follower to play)

A big welcome to you, My Dear Blogging Friends, and to my newest followers. Hope you are enjoying a wonderful crafting week!


This month at Fashionista Challenges it is all about WINGS! Anything with wings - images, punches, die cuts, embellishments, graphics. Just enter your pretty card in the challenge for a chance to win a prize, or earn a pretty badge for your blog! You still have a week to submit your artwork!

Featuring the Wee Winged Tiplets!

These are no ordinary triplets. They are fraternal, not identical, but they love coordinating themselves, right down to their hair color and wings.

These sweet little Winged Wonders are from a single digi image found at Scrapbook Stamp Society.


Soooo darling!



Love the Grand Decorative One Labels from Spellbinders. The folded portion is actually the purple area. The Turquoise layer in the back is a single layer.


There are little "wings" attached to the heart. The MS Enchanted Heart Punch was done with white cardstock, Pool Dye ink, Sparkle Embossing Powder, and Tender Leaves die cut in mulberry paper.


The Craft Concepts 5x7 embossing folder (Secret Garden) does not show up very much, but in person, the details are very clear. Princess Rose EP was used on top of the dry embossing to match the other layers and bring a little bling to the layer.


The little fairies are so cute! They are actually fraternal triplets, can you tell? Though they are not identical, they do have the same coloring, same hair shade and same color eyes! They are, after all, sisters!

It's always fun coloring these darling big-eyed darlings!

Oh my, this is adorable and dazzling all at the same time! Adorable image, so expertly colored, and dazzling in the luscious color combo. LOVE all the "Donna Details" (wings on the heart, glitter on top of the dry embossed layer, precious little flourish flower hanging over the sentiment panel, you know, Donna Details!) and the diecut layers with the fancy edges give this piece such frilly beauty! Love this piece, sweetie, and thank you so much for joining us at A Gem of a Challenge this week! :)
