Build Your Wings

It's Tuesday and that means it's time to play along with Mercy's Tuesday's Sketch Challenge. I love the fact that this week's challenge is both simple and beautiful.

I chose to use My Mind's Eye Bella Bella papers as additional inspiration and then reached for this a stamp from Hampton Art called "Take the Leap". I think this sentiment is wonderful. It got me to thinking about how often I take a risk or "leap" and I decided that more often than not, I usually get pushed!

See the two little wings I on the sentiment panel? I created them by punching a small heart out of card stock and cutting it in half. I then added Distress Stickles for some shine.

You'll find the rest of the details below. It really was very simple for a change.

Thanks for sharing a minute of your time visiting. It always makes my day when you leave a comment, even if it's just to say "Hey!".

It's all about the details:

Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye, Bella Bella
