Wings or Tails at Allsorts challenge

Hello and welcome!

It's my turn to host this week at Allsorts challenge and all are invited to join us! I selected the the fun theme of "Wings and/or Tails" and as I love all kinds of animals and winged things, I cannot wait to see what you will share with us this week! We have 2 fantastic prizes this week, a stamp set by AALL and Create (Follow your Path) and a choice of 3 digis from Ruth Hamilton Design

I decided to use a cute stamp from Penny Black's set "Gather Around".

I used a mix of Zig Clean Color brush markers and Distress inks for coloring. The patterned paper is a scrapbook. com exclusive - Watercolor Christmas 02 which is a 6x6 paper pack containing 12 beautiful double sided papers. I used stardust Stickles glitter for some sparkles on the ornaments. The sentiment is from this Colorado Craft stamp set Wonderful Time. I used a retired Whimsy Stamps die to cut it out. The ribbon is from my stash, I thought it was a perfect match. I also used some silver twine to tie around the ribbon on both sides of the sentiment. 

Thanks so much for visiting!
