A Feathery Card

Hello lovely peeps,

Here is a quick card to show you which I am going to enter for the challenge at CAS(E) this sketch and  and  Less is More which is all about metal. The challenge Let's Craft and Create is embossing (wet or dry) so here is my entry.

This metallic paper was the same that Aleeza got from school. I had finished the scrap she got for me when I made the last hearty card. This was her bit lying around and I got tempted to make this feathery card with it. I have used an embossing folder to give the feathers more dimension and do think it looks nice. The sentiment and coppery crystal finish it off nicely though I wish I had used a flowery font for the sentiment. Anyway, it still looks nice, don't you think?




Wish you a happy Wednesday full of good heath and time to craft,

Monica

Monica, this is fabulous!!! Love the gold of those feathers. I just broke down the other day and bought a feather die - but haven't had a chance to use it yet. Thanks for the inspiration!

I agree with Sue -it would make a nice Men's card. Love the golden colors. Just this past December I saw a card made with die cut feathers, turned upside-down, gathered at the stems and made into a Christmas tree. :)
