Casology : wings

Hi there !

This week's cue card can literally take you places... where will it take you?


                                                              


My first thought when I see wings are usually bird or butterfly... but for today's inspiration I am flying a bit farther...so far that I miss you already!




I used faux embossing to create the background... if it's new to you , click here for a tutorial on how to achieve the embossed look without an embossing folder, using die cuts .

I added washi tape to the edges to create the airmail effect, and added my own sentiment which you can find at the end of the post.

For more inspiration , please visit my inspiring team mates!


The sponsor for this challenge is    7 kids college fund .

Here's the sentiment as promised:



Thanks for visiting me today!

Hope to see you play along this week :)
