Life Doesn't Have to be Perfect....

How is everybody this evening? Thank you so much to all of you who have left such lovely comments about my last few cards, I've been round visiting blogland for the last few hours, so hopefully you'll have a comment back from me.
I'm so happy to be posting this card tonight - for those of you who have been following me for a while, you might remember that I used to be on the Paper Cupcakes DT. The lady who designs all the images, the lovely Nina, was the first person to give me a chance on a DT when I first started blogging and I noticed a couple of weeks ago that she was looking for a GDT for September, well, a couple of e-mails later and here I am!! This week's challenge over at 'There's Magic in the Air' is Things with Wings. Here's my card:

Image - Paper Cupcakes coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
Papers - Glitz Design 'Cashmere Dame'.
Punch - MS Butterfly punch.
Other - Ribbon and Gems from stash.

A little bit different for me? I usually shy away from black and white papers but fell in love with this paper pad and because the image had quite bold black lines, I thought they might work!?
I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
Right, I think that'll do! Don't forget to join in with the challenge - I'm sure you can whip a wing on there somewhere ;-) Before I go, I just wanna ask you to please think of my poor little ka tomorrow, going through it's MOT, pppppppppllllllleeeeeeeeeaaaaaaassssseeeeee let it pass cos I don't know what I'd do without it!!
