Simon Says.......

.......Stamp and Show!  A new challenge blog sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, and one that has two of my cruise buds as DT members....Lori and Nancy.
I know, this is my second post of the morning, but I find these challenges hard to resist.
The first SSSS challenge theme is "wings."  I figured I'd do something a little different instead of my usual tag or ATC.  So, here is a button fairy:
The butterfly wings were cut from Ten Seconds Studio metal with Tim's Fanciful Flight die, then sanded a bit.  The "art" face is an Invoke Arts stamp, and it is on a crushed bottle cap.  The buttons are just some from my (very large) stash.

Congratulations Eileen. What a lucky duck you are. I couldn't think of anything better to win than a "Sherry necklace". Oh my goodness. That is just wonderful. So so so happy that it was you.

Hello Eileen,

nice piece : indeed fun to see something else than a tag or a card ( although I like them too...)

Nice colors :) and beautiful buttons you used. Great use of the metal too.

You're right about the challenges : I like them a lot too, feel really challenged by them.
I'm just not SO fast as you ! LOL

I'm almost ready to finish my halloween pennants and then i head over to these challenges !

greetings from Belgium
