Good Morning sweet friends. Hope you day is going well. Here in the desert we
had a big wind last night with gusts up to 50 and it sure made a mess. Everything
is covered with a layer of dirt and anything loose was blown all around the yard,
even blew the top lid off the cooler and blew off the roof! But of course it was
nothing compared with the terrible devastation all those suffered from the
horrible tornadoes. Amazing stories of survival are emerging there. We
are praying for all those effected.

The Pixie Cottage challenge this week is things with wings.
I have used the Pixie Cottage rubber stamp, Edith the Butterfly
found at Michelle's Scrapbooking & More.

I have used some Basic Grey dp and stitched around it.
The ribbon was dyed to match and tied with the button.
The image was water colored and cut out with a Spellbinder #25.
I stamped the image a second time and cut out just the wings and popped
them up for some dimension.
Some faux stitching and then foam dotted on the base.

The border is a MS Butterfly with the bottom portion embossed with
a small dots folder. The sentiment is matted on a Spellbinder
Fancy tag foam dotted on.
