Flutter By Wednesday #190 – Anything with Wings

Happy Wednesday and welcome back for the latest challenge at Flutter By Wednesday! Back by popular demand, this week’s challenge is open to anything with wings!

So feel free to make a card with bees, bats, birds, airplanes, dragonflies, or anything else you can think of that has wings! Normally, the challenge is limited to angels, fairies or butterflies (and we’ll go back to that requirement next week), but not this time!

Here’s my card, which is also the one I gave my dear husband for Valentine’s Day:

Supplies: Image and sentiment stamps (Kraftin’ Kimmie – Batty Princess), paper (Basic Grey – Kissing Booth), ink (Tsukineko; Stampin’ Up – Chocolate Chip), lace (KaiserCraft), Spellbinders oval die, Sizzix embossing folder, opaque white marker, Copic markers, brads, foam tape, heart-shaped rhinestone.
Normally, Batty Princess is more of a Halloween-themed stamp, but since Scott & I share a similar sense of humor, I thought he’d get a kick out of it…and he did! The first thing he noticed was the little bat on the left with the sparkly heart!

And he made me a Valentine’s Day card! It came in three parts…here they are all together:

And here are the three different layers:

(I think you can click on the pictures to make them bigger.)
It’s so sweet that he made the card for me…I’m so used to making them for other people, and the fact that he surprised me by making one is extra special! It’s the first time he’s made one for me. He started making it at work today, and his fellow soldiers gave him design suggestions, like making a border with staples or loading it up with glitter, but he kept it simple…and I’m happy about that!Β 
Don’t forget to visit the rest of the Flutter By Wednesday Design Team: Danni, Anna, Amanda, Harriet, Karen, Kristie, Leanne, Lynette, Mary, Michelle VP, Michelle, and Nancy!

    I just adore your Valentine's to each other. The Kissing Booth line was one of my favourite papers this year and the batty image from Kraftin Kimmie goes SO well with it.

    Your 3 part Valentine is absolutely darling that he made the effort and took all that time. So cute. Glad you had a great one, Suzanne!

    Well I was wondering if anyone would use the bat theme but with Halloween still a little ways off I wasn't sure. How clever to use it for Valentine's Day. Great way to get more use of our stuff, right! It's a wonderful creation!!

My hubby did that once, he used my stamps & I was thrilled. πŸ™‚ I LOVE your card, I love that this image that I would have though of as being for Halloween really makes the PERFECT Valentine! Fabulous coloring, too. πŸ™‚ Thanks for your sweet and encouraging comments. Just a little speed bump, but I am a-ok. πŸ™‚
