SHOPPING OUR STASH #272 - Duck, Duck, Goose



Good morning to you, crafty friends! This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, we'd like to see birds and/or feathers on your projects. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!! Here's my card:


 and the inside:

I love this sketchy bird stamp. It's colored using my Spectrum Noir markers, and popped up on a die cut/embossed circle. The paper I used for the top panel is meant to be leaves, but I thought they could also be feathers too. I was extremely happy to find that ribbon in my stash, which matched perfectly with the color in the paper! I edged the circle die cut with gold ink, and to add some more gold accents, I colored several rhinestones with a gold SN marker before adhering them on my card. 


I hope you find some time this week to play along at Shopping Our Stash! Since it's a new month, we have a new Guest Designer - welcome Gina of Daydream Believer! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with this month with us! For more inspiration, please do yourself a favor and visit the blogs of my teammates, and leave them some bloggy love!
