Wispy Feathers



Hello everyone!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!!! How was your Valentines Day?? My hubs gave me a dozen roses and took me out to a dinner theater...Whoohoo!!! It's been a while since we had time to go out on the town...I didn't know how to act...LOL!!! Every year a mystery theater comes to Ft. Hood...it's kinda like the Clue game. They have actors who act out 3 murders and the audience tries to figure out who did it and why. We didn't win but we had a great time anyway!! 

I made a card this morning for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast...the inspiration store was called West Elm and I picked this gorgeous Peacock Silk Pillow Cover as my inspiration. The feathers from the new Taylored Expressions set called Wispy Wishes were stamped with Versamark, embossed with white ep, and cutout with the coordinating dies called Wispy Feathers


The background was created with the TE Ruffle My Feathers cutting plate...it was cut out of Not Quite Navy card stock and layered over black card stock. Rhinestones were added along with the white hemp cording to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful evening!!!!
