A Feathery Birthday Card

After a busy, long week, I spent part of my Friday night making some cards. It took me some time to gain inspiration, but after looking through a few card challenges for this week, I was inspired to make a birthday card using a stamp set I haven't touched for a long time! 

Fab Friday has a clean and simple sketch this week, which gave me the perfect start to making my card:

And Seize the Birthday has their usual "Anything Goes" theme this week. The 'Topping' option this time was felt, but I'm pretty sure I don't own any felt... or it's buried somewhere in my crafting supplies... So I opted out on that :). 

And here's the card:

The Stampin Up stamp set I used was "Four Feathers". I loved this stamp set when I first saw it, but wasn't really sure how to incorporate it into my card designs. This sketch gave me the perfect opportunity. The large circle on the card was the perfect spot for these 3 feathers that I stamped and die-cut. The colours I used are probably my favourite colour combination lately -- Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Basic Gray, Smokey Slate, Basic Black and Whisper White. Shades of teal have always been my favourite colours! I added a small strip of black and white designer series paper which seems to pop right out of the card! A couple of the feathers and the sentiment is popped up to give the card some dimension. I've also added texture by embossing the background with "Decorative Dots". Bakers twine and small rhinestones embellish the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
