Snowdrops and a Bluebird

Another week has flown by and it's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. This week our optional theme is "Something with Wings". We'd love for you to include wings but you may share all your new crafty makes for a chance to win a prize or be selected as one of the Top 5. 

This is a new to me stamp by Penny Black (Pretty Perch). I stamped with Versafine Onyx ink on Bristol Vellum paper and used diluted Distress inks for coloring. I used stardust stickles glitter to make the snow sparkle. The patterned papers are from my stash and sentiment from the Penny Black set Blooming Sentiments. Some jute twine finishes off the card.

The challenge runs for one week and hope you'll join us! As a reminder, prizes are now announced just once a month but still selected from the weekly entries as before. This month's prizes come from WOWVOWCraft StashAALL and Create and Ruth Hamilton Design and winners will be announced on the challenge blog on Friday February 24th!! That is this coming Friday so be sure to mark your calendars!
