Time flies

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme this time is...


I hope you all love fairies, butterflies, birds... all things winged because we certainly do at In The Pink!

Now here's a little tip for you...
The lace looked just a teensy bit too bright white for this card so I got the sponge that I use to apply my Frayed Burlap distress ink and lightly pressed it over the top of the lace; I didn't add any ink to the sponge and just used the residue on it so it was a really subtle effect.
You won't even be able to tell by looking at the card but it is much better!

I have used another of my new stash of LOTV stamps with a little added sparkle of course!

I made a large pull out tag with space to write a message.

I am wondering if I should have popped some pearls or maybe a sentiment on the front of the card too, but do let me know what you think!
