Challenge #37 @ Love to Scrap - Let's Fly Away

For the first September challenge @ Love to Scrap, we want to see something that flies incorporated into your project.  This could be birds, butterflies, airplanes, witches.......as long as it can fly, it's okay.  And, as always, a rubber or digi stamped image needs to be included.

I worked with the "sign Autumn" image from Bugaboo Stamps, one of our sponsors for this challenge.  I love the big chunky letters, the leaves, and the cute little crow perched on top.

 
Since I was working with warm colors, I printed the digi image onto eggshell cardstock instead of white, and then colored in the image with Copic markers.  I sponged some Shabby Shutter Distress ink around the edges, followed with some Vintage Photo Distress ink.  To fill in the upper right corner, I added a ribbon strip and two wooden leaf buttons.
 
We have two sponsors for this challenge:  Bugaboo Stamps (seven images of choice) and The Stamping Chef (three images of choice).  Link up your high flying creation to the Love to Scrap challenge blog for your chance to win!
 
I'm also entering this card in the current Chocolate, Coffee & Cards challenge (a bingo challenge - I used yellow, blue, and string) the something old/something new challenge @ 4 Crafty Chicks (new ribbon and really old wooden leaf buttons) and the Autumn colors with ribbon/trim challenge @ Really Reasonable Ribbon (bty, the ribbon on this card was from the RRR August ribbon club selection - which was gorgeous!).
