Crafting with dragonflies DT post - Stickpins - Things with wings.

Hello all,

Today is the start of a new challenge over at Crafting with Dragonflies. This fortnight we're looking for a card featuring Stickpins, with the theme "Things with wings".

Our sponsor is Crafts and Me, who are offering the lucky winner 3 digis of their choice.

Now, on to my card...

I got to use the "The new boots" digi to create my card, and I really, really loved this one!
Initially, I thought "ohhhh fairy!" and reached for the stickles. However, I managed to stop myself, as I decided she was a nature fairy, not a princess fairy, if you know what I mean, and therefore the Stickles weren't quite right.
I'm quite proud of my restraint! :-)

The pink and green heart stickpins I got in a wheel from Every Craft's a pound a while ago, and had yet to use any of them. I keep forgetting about them, so this was a really useful challenge for me! lol.
The sentiment is from Little Darlings, and the leafy die-cut was created with a spellbinders "foliage" die. The pink swirl was a gift from a lovely blog friend.
The paper at the back is Prima, but unfortunately I'm a little fuzzy on the others... Magazine freebies is all I can tell you! The flowers are WOC.

Your turn! Make us a card featuring stickpins! You can buy them, or make them yourself (the best ones always are!). My fellow Dragonflies and I are looking forward to flying over to your blogs to see your creations!

Don't forget to take a peek at the rest of the DTs blogs to see their creations. They're all soooo lovely! And their cards are great too! lol.

Have a great day people!

(who is hopefully fast asleep by the time you read this...)
