Wee Winged Little Sister Besties

Note: April's Blog Candy Question can be found here. Deadline is April 30.


  aren't we just too,


      and too cute?

             and OH SO darling?

Aren't we?

Introducing Sherri Baldy's new creations

"Wee Winged Besties" 

There are several images for this set - click here to view them all and get your daily dose of adorable-ness.

Each month, the design team at Scrapbook Stamp Society is given a challenge. This month, we are to create cards utilizing embellishments not commonly seen on cards. I was given this adorable image called Wee Winged Little Sister Besties.

It was then that I noticed Big Sister was actually posing in front of a mirror so she could admire her pretty little self, 
          and to make sure her perfect little wings were on straight and had just the right amount of glitter,
                     and that her tights were properly pulled up.
                                 And... you know how big sisters are...

It was difficult keeping my reflection out of the "mirror" while photographing

The CD is both her mirror AND my uncommon embellishment for the card.

Fumble Fingers here used the Craft-dee Bowz to make the little bow. Two layers of organza white, and one layer of poke-a-dotted grosgrain aqua ribbon.

The sentiments for this 6x6 easel card are computer generated.
