The Winner and Top 3 of our Things with Wings challenge
are at the end of this post.

Now let's see what the Design Team have for you.

Asha - For my Shabby Chic card I picked up an old favourite of mine: PickNix 1 All Sewn Up. The papers, sentiment and digi embellishments are from the from this set. To finish my card I used flowers, pearls, lace and some ribbon from my stash.


Scatty Jan - For my Shabby Chic project I have used one of the scrummy cut files and used the Teapot template for my card - The papers and flowers are from The Rose Budd collection, just added some lace and bling to finish.


Penny - using the wonderful papers from the Nordic Winter Picknix 3 collection.   I traced the flowers from the kit and cut on plain papers to make the layered flower and added some stitching and gold embossing with stencilling for some added detail.     I even pulled out my distressing machine and made some noise on those card edges and added distress ink to all my edges and little pearls hidden around the card.


Karon - I couldn't resist using the fabulous Rose Budd Collection for my Shabby Chic card this week. I have made a book card.  For the outside, I used the pre-coloured image of  Miss Constance, and have layered her up to add some dimension. (She is also available as a clear stamp, if you wish HERE.) For the inside I added a verse, and all the papers are from this amazing collection.  A little bit of lace from my stash to finish it off.  I did a second photo to show you the inside :-)



Aunty Sue - Well for my Shabby Chic Project which I had to look up the definition for. I have done a little mini album/Tag book. I idea is that you write on the tags or add little pictures if you want. I havent used a image but used papers and elements for each of the pages from 2 cds- Rose Budd collection  available here and one of my favorites Twiggy & Toots available Here. I have added Lace and Ribbons and gems from my stash. Each page has different elements and will all be on my blog .The Pages Bases have actually been made from Toilet Rolls. I do hope you like it as much as I have enjoyed making.
