The  new challenge today at Crafty Cardmakers, is hosted by Marie.
This time we are asking you to show us 'Things with Wings.

 This time I decided to make a Tag.
I used Tim Holtz die for the bird cage, trimmed it with buttons.
The bird and background stamping are Pink Paislee stamps.
The ticket is a Stampers Anonymous stamp.
All the colours used are Distress inks, Spun Sugar, Peacock Feathers and Peeled Paint.
It doesn't show so well but I highlighted areas and edges with Shabby Pink embossing powder from Stampendous.

Other challenges I will be entering  are-
Anything But a Card- The very first challenge here is Anything Goes.
The Crafty Pad  - Challenge186 Anything but a square
Moving Along with the Times  -Flying High
