CCC11 Creative Challenge Monday Feathery Thanks & Happy Birthday

I really loved the colors for this Creative Challenge.  They felt like fall.  Although I am a summer girl through and through, I have to admit I love fall colors.  They are very pretty.  

I’ve been desperate to use the feather framelits since I got them.  So here is this weeks card.  I like how it turned out.

This card really challenged me because this is not a color combination I would normally put together.  However I ended up really liking it.  The black just really pops.  And you know me, I always have to have some sort of bling.  Thus the glimmer paper feather.  It had to be done.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Pattern Combinations: I love combining patterns.  The polka dots and chevrons is a super popular pattern combination.  Generally speaking putting a large print with a small print is also a great idea.
  • Feather Framelits:  When you use feather framelits the little piece at the end of the feather sometimes sticks.  Use a paper piercer to carefully push the end of the feather out of the framelit.  It will pop right out.
  • Project Life by Stampin’ UP! Holiday Cheer:  Don’t let the fact that you don’t “DO” Project Life stop you from picking up this gem.  This is a great stamp set for cards and ESPECIALLY for making tags.  You will not be disappointed.

Last but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST!  I have to say Happy Birthday to my sweet girl today!  She is 6 years old.  I do not know where the time has gone.   I feel like it was yesterday that I had her.  Time is flying by so fast.  Just for the record she picked this cake out! LOL.  Uncle Si is her favorite.  So she ate his face.  HAHA!
