Crafty Calendar Challenges May Challenge

Good morning, good morning. Wow two cards in one week that is a record at the moment lol. 

As it is the first Saturday of the month it means it is time for another Crafty Calendar Challenge and this month our challenge is 'Things with wings' and the optional extra of 'Use acetate'.

For my card today I had to dig deep to find an image with something that had wings and this is the best I could come up with, oh how I miss all my crafty supplies! I used 'Nice to meet you' from Little Darlings and teamed it with this butterfly stamp that I stamped onto acetate with Stazon, this is not something I have done before on a card but I actually quite like the effect. I managed to use up some of my scraps from the Echo Parks 'A walk in the garden' range as well as some Bazzill scraps so I guess you could call this a scraped card lol.
