Perfect Sentiments Challenge #46 - Missing Wings

Here we are on another Wednesday in August!  Here in MN we are all heading out to the "Great Minnesota Get-Together" (the state fair).  Now I know you all have state fairs, but Minnesota's is huge - and I'm not just talking about the 320 acres that comprise the fairgrounds, attendance averages 1.8 million annually making it the largest 12-day event in North America.  My favorites?  You can eat all day and never have something that's not "on-a-stick", visiting the arts & crafts building where there's a giant paper-mache lion that my Aunt Nancy helped make when she was in college at the University of Minnesota and what would a fair be without the critters?!

Ok enough about the we have a new challenge for you over at The Perfect Sentiment.  I had lots of fun with this one as I tried to come up with a unique card to fit the theme.  Here goes:

The Challenge:  Create a card with a sentiment of Missing You (**Be Sure Your Sentiment Is On The Front of the Card!)

The Twist:  Use something with Wings somewhere on your card.  The winged object can be an embellishment, printed on your patterned paper, stamped, etc.

Our lovely sponsor this week is Pattie's Creations!  She is generously offering one randomly selected winner a free digi of choice from her shop - check it out!

So here's the fun card I created for this challenge:

Cardstock:  Recycled Chipboard Packaging; Bazzill – Coconut Swirl; Silver Mirror Paper
Designer Paper:  Lilybee Design – Picket Fence; Basic Grey - Euphoria
Stamps:  Stampendous – Tea Time
Inks, Stains and Paints:  Versacolor – Boysenberry; Ranger Distress Ink – Walnut Stain, Tumbled Glass
Dies, Punches & Embossing Folders:  Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations – Caged Bird; Cheery Lynn – Exotic Butterfly
Accessories & Other Stuff:  Wild Orchid Crafts – Roses; American Crafts Twine; Hero Hues Gems

Now I KNOW you haven't seen enough...head over to the blogs of the fabulous Perfect Sentiments Design Team gals and GET INSPIRED!!!  Then create your own Missing Wings and join in the fun!
