Try your wings

The latest posts have been showcasing CAS cards so now I hade the urge to go wild with papers and embellies. The sentiment says that you have to try your wings to know if you can fly, in Swedish.

Challenges:
Always Playing with Paper: Sketch and Colour Combo
Crafty Calendar: Petals and Pearls
Crafty Catz: Anything Goes
Stampin' for the weekend: Anything Goes, their last challenge :(
Pixie's Snippets Playground: Use Snippets
Dream Valley Challenges: The song "Try Your Wings" (Amel Larrieux), my choice

Materials used:
Vilda Stamps sentiment stamp, Versa Fine ink, scissors to cut wings, Distress inks for distressing
MME Bella Bella design paper snippets, Itsy Bitsy border die, Perfect Pearls, paper distresser
The designer paper with the fairies is a leftover piece from a magazine freebie, Distress Stickles, ProMarkers for shadowing
Ribbon is from a shirt, flowers and pearl stick are reused from other projects.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated. Try your wings today and do something you dreamed of or fall in love. 

Warm hugs
Maarit
