BBTB2 - Peggy Loves Vintage Challenge

So, over at BBTB2 they are having a challenge sponsored by Peggy Loves Vintage and you had to use one of the 5 images that was provided as well as a "bug" in your creation.

I decided to use the kids with the sand. I went to print it out and oh-no! My printer was out of paper, but it left this gorgeous watermark. So, I decided to leave it as it was and use it as such. I added gold wings with a stamp (yes, you read that right) that I found in a throw-away bin to the little children. My "bug' aspect was the embossing with the Cuttlebug™ using the A2 Script Texture Emboss Folder™. I then sanded it a bit to wear it down. The silver bow came off of a Christmas gift - I've been hoarding the ribbon :) and I just love the background card stock which you can barely see, but it's really pretty and matches the colors perfectly.

I hope Peggy doesn't mind that I added wings and didn't print it out in color!

The link to the actual contest is here. Then you won't have to scroll down :).

How creative! I don't mind a bit that they have wings. I love how you put it all together and made it a very unique card. Good job and well done!

You have done it again! I love your card and the way you sanded the embossing is a nice touch. That ribbon is very pretty. Isn't it funny that you ran out of ink and it helped you create something beautiful....Thanks...Great job.
