you got this!!

I was going through different blogs this morning and came across the CASE Study Challenge blog. Ive seen the wonderful cards from this blog before but was always intimidated by it for whatever reason. Really after thinking about it, isn't this how us card makers make cards?? We see other cards and make our own version of it?? Well thats what I did today!! I had feathers on the brain so I ran with it!!!

I recently got these new feather dies and wanted to put them to use!! So to start I had actually die cut both sizes of the feathers out of scrap white paper and vellum, then decided that I wanted to die cut it out of the card front and do so inlaying. I angled it a little cause I wanted the feathers to look like they were tied. I thought the bigger white feather needed to be a little more poppy so I pulled out my perfect pearls and painted it. I did the same with the vellum feather as well!! I then added my sentiment with white embossing powder, then set the other feathers down on top once I had tied them together. Thought it needed a little something else and so I drew on the stitched markings. Not a norm for me but added that little detail I felt was missing. And of course some sequins!!! 

I rally like how it turned out and today for the first time wasn't initiated by this challenge!! Hope you all take the time to check it out!!
