Love Wings

Hi Peeps,

It is extremely late at the moment and my eyes are all blurred from wanting sleep.  However I have made a card and must post it now in time for some challenges.  Please excuse the thousand pictures of the card in all sorts of lighting.  As its late, it was very difficult to find a light source that will show the card in true light.  I still cant tell - blurred eyes.

Here is the card.  Its a shaped easel card. 

This image is by Sherri Baldy and was coloured in with copics.   The letters L O V E U are beads stuck onto the image.

For the Birthday Bash challenge #3 at Beccy's Place, the theme is shaped card. I chose a butterfly shape which I think goes with my sentiment quite nicely. The sentiment says "Love U - Your love gave me wings".

This is my first attempt at a shabby chic card.  Honestly, I don't really know what that means, so I hope this passes as one.

This is a close up of the sentiment which I typed up in word and printed. 

Close up of the flower I made using pink and brown satin circles, lace, and a pearly flower embellishment thingy.

This is what the closed card looks like.
And this is inside of the card and its finished off with 2 layers of sheer organza ribbon.  I seem to be using this ribbon on all my cards.

Ok, so there's my card.  Would love to know what you all think.
Thank you for visiting.
