Crafting for all Seasons #77 "Things with Wings"

Good morning all.
Still recovering from a brilliant weekend celebrating my sister's 50th birthday. We started with a day at the races last Wednesday, followed by afternoon tea on Thursday then two nights of music at the pub she runs on Friday and Saturday. I slunk off home after lunch on Sunday and left them to a third night of music...just can't take the pace any more!!
Off to Edinburgh today to get hubby kitted out for our holidays at the weekend and buy new suitcases - I'd forgotten we'd thrown ours out after Venice as the wheels had broken.

Today it's time for our next challenge at CFAS and this time the theme is "Things with Wings". We're  looking forward to seeing all your makes. As it's our third birthday we have two sponsors this time - Bugaboo and Lacy Sunshine who both gave the DT images to work with.

I've used  Penguin Joy from Bugaboo and coloured it with promarkers before adding some stickles and a few gemstones. Backing paper is from Papermania, ribbon from my stash.
Insert completed and another one flat for posting.
