Birthday Feathers.


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday, and it's a fun anything goes theme this time! I hope you can play along with any birthday themed cards.
The Design Team have some wonderful ideas to inspire you.


This was a quick and easy card to make.
 I had an old calendar in my stash from my days working as a librarian. The pages were these gorgeous shades of bronze, pink and purple and the paper is lovely and thick. (I just checked the date and it's from 1999! I left my last library in 2001 so it pays to never throw things out lol!)

I diecut the feathers, glued them in place and added a bronze sequin.
The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed.
 Since this took about 10 minutes to do, I'm linking up to the challenge at AAA Cards where it's a made in minutes theme.






The theme at Die Cuttin Divas is national library day! 
Not sure if my work connection and the calendar is suitable!



Supplies:
Hero Arts paper layering feather die; Annabelle Stamps retired sentiment stamp; versamark ink & clear ep.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
