Today's card was created for the latest Freshly Made Sketches challenge. As soon as I saw this sketch I had to case it immediately. I bought the MFT feather dies last year during a sale and am embarrassed to say that I've not used them once since they were shipped to me. So, I knew I had to break them out and use them for this one. I started with a white card base and layered on a piece of patterned paper from the American Crafts Dear Lizzy 6x6 paper pad. I die cut a piece of Canson watercolor paper and layered on some distress ink in picked raspberry. Once I heat dried the paper I added some 3M foam tape to the back for dimension and to help straighten out the paper after watercoloring it. I cut down a small strip of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment from The Cat's Pajama's Simply Stacked Sentiments stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink. I adhered the strip straight to the focal panel and then die cut the feathers using the same American Crafts paper pad. I inked the edges with the same distress ink and adhered the smaller once straight to the card. I popped the other feather up using foam dimensionals from Stampin' UP. A few scattered sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh in 4mm and 6mm finished this card off. I hope you like it!
