I Spy With My Little Eye.... Something with Wings (Challenge #3)

Hello everyone, Pauline and I are back again with a new "I spy with my little eye" challenge taking place right here on my blog! So glad you decided to stop by today and we would love for you to join us too! There were many lovely entries in the last challenge with some amazing inspiration! Our top 2 is at the end of the post who will both be invited to join us as guest designers which of course is totally optional. This time around it's Pauline's turn to choose a theme and it is..........

I Spy With My Little Eye....

"Something With Wings".

The wings can be prominent on your creation or not, as long as there are wings somewhere found you may link up with us! We can't wait to see what you will share! 

And here are our shares for your inspiration:

My card (Ellie)

A Penny Black stamp was used as the focal point (Flower Perch) colored with Distress inks on watercolor paper. I used some retired stamps from my stash on the background for some interest. I love inspirational quotes and Tim Holtz's Tiny Text has lots to choose from including the one I used here.

Wenn ich Deine Karte sehe, schaue ich in meinen Garten. Denn es sitzen die Vögel auch sehr gern in den Bäumen und Sträuchern. Wunderschön. Ich mag ganz besonders die zarte Colourierung. Und ich bedanke mich sehr für die Möglichkeit, diesen Monat Gastdesignerin zu sein. LG Gundi
