Do You Stack Up? Challenge #29

Maybe you have an idea of our new challenge this week from my snippet?
Just to make sure you DO know what the new DYSU challenge is:
We want to see your creations with wings: chicken wings, angel wings, fairy wings, bug wings, etc.
We have a bunch of prizes to reward your efforts should you be a lucky random winner!


The Stamping Boutique is giving away FIVE digis of the winner's choice!





Tlc Creations will award the winner with a $10 Gift Certificate!




Pixie Dust Studio is giving away THREE digis of the winner's choice!



**************************************
And now for my card:  I chose a sentiment from Tlc Creations called "Watch Me Soar" which inspired me to make a CAS (clean & simple) card.  I wanted to be sure to showcase the sentiment.

My initial idea was to emboss a frame for the sentiment AND emboss a pattern on the card front.  I could not figure out how to do them at the same time, so I had a bit of a struggle on my hands.

If anyone knows of a sure fire way of getting this effect, I would love to be informed of it!

The butterfly was stamped with black Staz-on onto an acetate sheet.  Ranger Alcohol inks were sponged on the back side.  Then I cut it out and glued it on the card with Glossy Accents.

I could only find a few challenges that this card could qualify:
Clear it Out - anything goes
The Stamping Boutique - cool colors
If you need some inspiration, check out the works by the rest of the Design Team over at DYSU.  They are fabulous!
