Sentimental Sundays: Things with Wings

DSC05091
Hello everyone! I hope you all are doing great. Ramadan have started here and today is the second say of fasting.
Sentimental Sundays is challenging you this week with “Things with Wings” theme. Here is my creation based on inspiration picture below.

If you can see bit of stamping on the background, I have used Verve (Text Objects; Gandhi quote) and HA (fabulous flourish). The DP is a digi print, to which I added a few metallic sequins, outlined some flowers and leaves with gold glitter and distressed it using Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar. The label is hand cut, sentiment is from Fiskars.

I have used spun sugar on the butterflies as well along with pearl paint to give them some shimmer. The stamps are more clear in this picture.

Here’s the complete package with a coordinating gift bag.
My McGill Pine leaf punch got stuck. I cried.. literally cried while fixing it. I just have two leaf punches and I lost one of them! I have tried everything from WD40 to keeping it in the freezer to taking it apart… also hitting it with a hammer! Finally I gave up and purchased their new design at Simon Says, which of course my aunt had to pay for as my credit card NEVER works on SSS even with my country being mentioned in their list. Enough with the rant! I just have to say what a great great great customer service SSS provides! Absolutely the most helpful of the lot. 
Drop by the Sentimental Sundays blog to find out this week’s bonus challenge and to take in all the gorgeous DT inspiration!
Hugs and love!

Wow Erum - this is sensational! I love the colors you have used. They are so gentle and so sophisticated. And the addition on the side...WOW you have found alot of energy without eating! How is it going for you? I know it is early - but knowing from my own fast days, the early ones are the killers! Again, this card is SO beautiful it looks like it should go into a shadow box! Lots of love, Samara
