BERRY71BLEU DESIGN TEAM JANUARY 2015 CHALLENGE - Things with Wings - BABY YOU CAN DRIVE MY CAR

 
Hi everyone, HAPPY NEW YEAR and welcome to my blog.
I have some brilliant news to share with you.
Today I am honoured and privileged to showcase my very first layout for BERRY71BLEU DESIGN TEAM
for their first challenge for 2015!
 
The challenge this month is THINGS WITH WINGS.
If you know my work you will know that I love butterflies, so this challenge is right up my street. I have also added a little bird, and two larger angels all of which I made from paper clay.
 I used the beautiful coasters from our sponsor,  called Old Coaster Digital Paper https://www.etsy.com/shop/bydigitalpaper
