Cas-ology Wings and Fab Friday 69

I like it when ideas align and this morning I woke up with two challenges in mind and a single idea.
The cue word this week at Cas-ology is wings and there is a beautiful colour combination at Fab Friday.

I've used butterflies a lot in the last few months, so decided that I would not for the wings challenge and used a Dragonfly die instead. It's a little cutie, especially with the vellum wings I gave him today.

I made a circular mask and sponged Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss as a backdrop. I stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow, using the leaves from Summer Silhouettes. Using the white on white panel gave a subtle frame without sacrificing white space and I like that effect for this card. I used the new thick Whisper White for the base. It's the first time I've used that product and it's fantastic - another great idea by SU.

Update: Delighted to win at Cas-ology
and also to be one of the Fab Four at Fab Friday!

Card: Whisper White, Blackberry Bliss, vellum
Ink: Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow
