So Proud of You!

Thank you, everyone, for your kind and encouraging comments on the Summer Carousel card.  Welcome and thank you to my new followers too!  It is such a privilege getting to know you all.

Today's card is CAS.  Every Tuesday the Silhouette online store gives away a free digital image.  This peacock feather graphic came free as a larger background a while back.  I was trying to figure out how to make some fringe-like feathers to go with it, and I knew I wanted to use this stamp sentiment so, voila!


That's not dust on your screen, it's a shimmer mist on the "eye" edged with glitter.  I raised up one edge of it with foam tape to give just a little dimension.  The thin green strip was cut using the Creative Memories curvy cutting tool (which I neglected to add to the Inlinkz).

This card was inspired by the current CAS-ual Fridays Challenge
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you are having a wonderful day!

  20. Where should I begin, Kara? the color combo, the texted feather, the raised tip, the mist and glitter or the design? :) I am not a big fan of feathers, but peacock feather is an exception! I love it! Maybe because of the blue/green colors...
