Fabulous Feathers!

Hello Again!
Today's card was probably the most challenging of all! The challenge for CAS(E) this Sketch #106 was, at first glance, no problem!! Got it... Well, no I didn't get it. I actually went through 3-4 tries before I came up with this design and I just love the way it turned out!

The colors are coming from Create with Connie and Mary color challenge #CCMC338.  I am in love with this color combo! The stamp set is the Four Feathers bundle from Stampin' Up!  I used the die to mask the feathers off to have that layered 'X look'. The sentiment is the Perfect Pennants set from Stampin' Up! I got this stamp set specifically for this sentiment.  One of my favorite sayings of all time! The size and shape of the sentiment is perfect for the banner. Then, I just added a few sequins for some sparkle.

The 'X' pattern is consistent with the CAS(E) this sketch #106
and love the colors!
Card Size: A2- 4.25" x 5.5"
Layering the black border with the white border
'lightens' up the design.

I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I enjoyed making it (when I figured it out!). Have a great day and we will see you soon with another card from TheGrandStampede..

Sending good thoughts your way!
All the best,

Love the "tumbling" feathers. What a lot of work to color each blade of the feather in alternating colors! Looks great! Thanks for playing the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge this week!
