The Wing's the Thing

Dear Ones!
This week I am hosting over at the Mod Squad Challenge. I am calling my challenge The Wing's the Thing and am asking players to use anything with wings as the focal for their card.
Our sponsor this week is Gina K Designs and Stamp TV

A $20 gift certificate to the Gina K Designs store.
Here is my example:
For this card I used a Gina K Designs stamp set by Melanie Muenchinger called Holiday Frame for the background. Then I paper pieced patterned paper from the Sending Love Patterned Paper pack. The butterflies and greeting are from the Sending Love stamp set. I colored the butterflies with Copics and then used Spectrum Noir Glitter Pens to spark them up. I used Fine Tech metallic watercolor in gold to add the gold spots. Then I fussy cut the butterflies out and placed them on the card. I created the bigger butterfly twice and attached them together for dimension, with some pop dots under the wings to keep them up.
Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Turquoise Sea Card
