Fly away with Sentimental Sundays!

It's time for another Sentimental Sundays Challenge! This week we want to see THINGS WITH could be butterflies, fairies, birds...or even airplanes! Just make sure that whatever it has wings and that you use a sentiment as always.

I pulled out a new stamp and new paper for this challenge and I just love how it turned out!

This beautiful sprite is Coriander--one of the beautiful Sweet November Stamps by Amy Young. Isn't she just exquisite? I snagged her as part of the buy 2 get one free sale that Paper Jewels was having...but she's not available there anymore (due to an AWESOME closeout sale!!)...but you can find her HERE at 7 Kids College Fund. She was such a dream to color. I pulled out my watercolor pencils (yes, again!) so I could get some good shading and blending. Her dress was paper pieced from this awesome paper by Reflections--from the Indian Summer line. This piece is called "Big Sky". The green coordinates and is called "Down in the Valley". I used the sketch layout from this week's GET SKETCHY #69 challenge. It just worked delightfully with what I had in mind.

The sentiment is from the Birthday Cheer set by Paper Makeup Stamps and the flourish is from a random flourish set I bought WAYYYY back when I first got started. I added some glitter to the flourish and to Coriander's wings for my extra bling.

Now it's your turn! What will you create with wings for us to see? Upload your NEW creation to our Linky Log on TODAY'S POST! Use the tag sentimentalsundays37 if uploading to SCS so we can find your creation!
