This week at Dutch Dare is winged things!
That can be many things.
A bird, a plane... (superman does not have wings, sorry), but butterflies and other insects
do.  You get the picture. Come join us
this week with anything with wings.

I needed to make a very quick sympathy
card and remembered I had these
pre-made card bases from K&Co.
This tag was perfect! I also had a
scrapbook kit in the same pattern with
paper and embellishments.
This was one of those cards that
came together nicely and I am actually
pleased with the results!
Love when that happens!!
 Side View
Love that ribbon, but it was difficult
to work with!! I fiddled with both
bows FOREVER and still was not able
to get it quite right! It is the same 
brand I often used, but this color
must be a different fabric.
