Final Week of "Things with Wings"

August is coming to an end and today's Bank Holiday sees the final week of our month of "things with wings" over at Make My Monday!  We have something a little different for you this week - we would like to see your craft inspired by the following photograph:-

You can interpret this photo whichever you wish - it could be the butterflies, the colour, the bird cage, or the bird that inspires long as there is something "with wings" on your creation!  I have been inspired by the bird, bird cage and the pink colour.

My contribution is an 8x8 card.  I have used Mariposa papers which I have overstamped with a Paperartsy swirl.  My oval is made from greyboard which has also been covered with Mariposa paper, this too has been overstamped with an Elusive Image stamp.

The bird cage and the bird on the branch have been cut from Marianne Creatables die from Bazill card.
My flower has been cut from a number of Marianne Dies, scrunched up and secured by a brad.  The background is greyboard which has been covered by old text and sentiment added.

I hope the photograph and my card inspired by it also inspires you to join us at Make My Monday!
There is great new overriding theme next month for September!

The inspiration photo is gorgeous and made me want to start stamping right away! I love your feminine interpretation of it with those soft colours and the pretty flowers and butterflies. Have fun in Devon and fingers crossed for the weather! Vx
