Your Wings Exist!

I love this message... Your Wings Exist...  It's like reminding you that you can do whatever you want and you have a great power.  Sometimes we need to get reminded, don't you think?  But don't you forget to remind others, so we help each other in the path of life.

A coworker resigned recently to work with another company.  We wish them the best of success and we know he'll really grow professionally.  He's dedicated, creative, has attention to details and listen!!!

So I made this card for him so he could have a token of appreciation from our side, for all the work and passion he has shown in a daily basis.


I used coordinated patterned paper from DCWV... I love these stacks because you know you'll have a lot of papers of great quality, already coordinated and ready to use!  These are from the Natural Matstack from the Premium line.


I used this stamp from Unity that I bought recently.  It's from "Your Wings Exist" kit and I just love it.  It comes with another 3 great stamps.  One of them is a little girl in a with extended arms and the wind blowing her hair... and it's gorgeous.  I did not want to use this image because I wanted to have a "male" looking card, but I love the message and I thought it was very appropriate for the occasion.  Don't you think?


Chipboard wings and star are from Fancy Pants, and the metal message from Portafolia.


I distressed the Core-dinations card-stock piece I used for the message/sentiment, and inked the edges with a gold ink from Dew Drop.

I'm also posting this link to show the card in the Unity blog today, since we are making projects with teal and craft colors.  I used more craft than teal, but there's the beauty of scrapbooking... Everyone will end up with so many different versions, styles, projects... I love this hobby!

So I hope you liked this card or somehow inspired you...  Let me know by leaving some love.... Your comments are appreciated.
