Hi and welcome to all my very talented, and craft loving friends.

Today starts a new challenge 
at the
It's the B Teams turn and the lovely Jackie T is your host, and she would like to see
Things With Wings on your creations.
The challenge runs from today till Wednesday the 11th of September and closes at 6PM GMT.
So here is what I made for my DT card.


This is a 7"x7" size card.
I made my backing paper from lots of the Hunkydory Topper Decks, and then distressed the edges with  scissors.
After which I inked all the edges with distress ink to make it look vintage looking.
I also added some gold gilding wax to give it a slight gold look. 

Please pop over to the challenge blog to see the lovely DT creations made by my B Team friends.

Thank you so much for your visit and precious time.
Lots of crafty love. JENNY.
