Colorful Confections

I was inspired by the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room to use aqua, pink and green together.
I went for vertical stripes in these colors.
The image is cut out with a circle die, to give a bit of "softness" to the straight lines.
I have cut out an extra set of wings in thin paper and added Star Dust Stickles. The purpose was to try and "lift" the wings off the paper for a 3D effect.

I enter this card into the following challenges:
1) The Shabby Tea Room - #104 Colorful Confections
2) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
3) Allsorts - #144 Spread your Wings
4) Penny Black and More - Springtime
5) The Pixie Cottage - #111 - Things With Wings
6) Crafts and Me - #74 Things with Wings
7) Guylou's Inimitability - Things with Wings
8) Flutter By Wednesdays - Fairy and Spring

The wings look so fluttery. It was a great idea to cut 2 and lift them. Very effective!
