Simply Create Too Challenge no. 116, Use Feathers

Hi Stampers,

I hope you're having a fab weekend. We have clouds here in AZ, which is good, since it means rain...eventually. We certainly need it.

At Simply Create Too, we're tasked to make a card using feathers. I found this beautiful fall/leaf embossing folder at Tuesday Morning and it's 5x7, from Crafters Companion. The embossing is quite deep. I used SU old olive cs and a newly purchased die from Simon Says, by Impressions Obsession,  that I diecut with a coppery glittery paper. I attached it onto a piece of dsp from my stash, matted by black cs with a zigzag piece of black cs for interest, then placed the diecut feathers from heavy weight vellum  and tied a twine bow and placed it in the corner.

I'm also entering this card at the Linky Party #19 at Crop Stop Challenge,  I'm not using any of their products, but that's easily rectified. :D. A little on-line shopping tomorrow maybe.

For good measure...i.e., more comments. Shameless, I know. 4 Crafty Chicks challenge using leaves. These embossed leaves almost appear stenciled to me.

I hope you can find some time to play. At Simply Create Too, we always have two full weeks to join in.
