Things with Wings at Basic Grey Challenges

Hello Peeps - a bit late with posting my card today - didn't get to bed until 3am as a certain person was having after show drinks with a certain cast of a certain musical in London following a week of work experience, and didn't have her certain phone on to let a certain person know she was ok!!!  She had a fantastic week though and this certain Mum is glad she was home safe and well!!!
Over at Basic Grey Challenges, we have a new challenge which is Things With Wings. I needed to make a good luck card for our niece and hubby who are flying off to America on Monday to live the American Dream for 18 months while hubby has a work transfer over to San Fransisco!
We went and had birthday/send off drinks last night with them and the family (except for a certain daughter ( and a certain son!)). 
This is a new image from the gorgeous Krista at Saturated Canary called Pack Light which seemed rather appropriate as they're shipping half their home over there!!  She looks a little like our gorgeous Fran too!!
My papers are a mix of Basic Grey Little Black Dress and Capella. The sentiment is from a Kaiser Craft set, yummy flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and my flutterby border ( my winged element, but maybe also the implied flight that my girlie is going on!) is a Tim Holtz die.
As always, our wonderful sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering one lucky winner a fab $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Superstore, just think of the goodies you could treat yourself to with that !!

As Please remember that you do need to use at least one Basic Grey product on your creation to qualify for our prize !

(Please note: This is a voucher code that entitles the winner to a $25 saving off their order in Simon Says Stamp, P+P charges will still apply unless the conditions are met to earn free P+P, please check here if you would like to see these conditions)

The awesome BG DT have made some beautiful cards to share with you so check them out here.

Right, this certain person is off to get dressed!

I enjoyed reading your post almost as much as I enjoyed seeing your fabulous card. Love how you've incorporated the wings theme in your top border. These papers are superb and your image is beautifully coloured. How lovely for Francesca to be heading off to the States and how lucky for Em to be surrounded by celebs! See you soon, matey! Love Lesley
