I had so much fun coloring her.  Next, I had to figure out what else I would include on the ATC.  I had this 1/2 butterfly laying around from a test that I did a few months ago…and all of a sudden I knew she would have one wind. Finally, I had to find a background, this paper I made last summer was perfect.

Then, just when I thought I was done I needed a name for her!  I couldn’t come up with one that seemed right.  Then I realized with one wing she would be grounded.  🙂



  1. Card Base:  Product packing.
  2. First Layer:  Handmade purple paper, edges distress with Distress Ink – Soot.
  3. Wing:  Silhouette file, double sided adhesive paper, Silk Glitter – Amythest, dark grey markers, stamps inked with DI – Soot.
  4. Image:  Lacy Sunshine – Amelia, colored with Copics, eye is a pearl brad.
