Wine Gives You Wings

... unless you drink too much of it - then  you'll understand how Icarus felt when he flew too near the sun and his wings melted. But that's one of the sentiments that appears on the  new Gnomes and Fairies CD from La Pashe, and combined with this sweet wine-sipping fairy-in-the-bath image from the CD, I thought it would make a fun card.

All the papers  and decoupage are from the CD. This double sided decoupage is designed to work with one of La Pashe's own "Flippin" card blanks, but I didn't have one so I cut my own, remembering to make a 3mm spine between each panel. That way when the two aperture sides are stuck together, the back of the decoupage doesn't get squished up against the card back and stop the card from properly closing.

I added some fairyland glitz with peel off borders and sparkly gems.




The image is stuck to both sides of a sheet of acetate, sandwiched between the front and back aperture panels.

With sentiments on the inside as well as the outside, this is a double whammy for this week's challenge at CD Sundays!
