Happy Birthday...CTS#31

Good morning and Happy Friday!!! Woo Hoo!! Hope everyone on the east coast is gearing down for tropical storm Andrea. We are already feeling the effects, and it hasn't even gotten here yet! Ugh!

Here is a card I made for Case this Sketch #31:

And the sketch:

I needed to make a masculine birthday card for one of my nephews and really wanted to use this sketch for it. Those are real feathers that I found over the winter. I knew that they would look cool on a card, and finally got to use them! A wood grain embossed background, some corrugated card board, a simple sentiment and I was done!

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment! I read every one and I appreciate the input! Have a great day!

  1. Love the feathers! I always struggle with masculine cards...yours are fantastic!!

  2. Fabulous masculine card. Thank you so much for joining us this week at CAS(E) this Sketch!

  3. those feathers are great! love it.

  4. What a cool card. This would make a great masculine card.

  5. Feathers, on a masculine card - and they totally work! I love it! Any idea what kind of bird they came from?

    1. Jessi, they are blue jay feathers. I double checked with my Father-in-Law who is a 'birder' to confirm. Also just found out that collecting any part of any bird, dead or alive, is against the law in the USA. OH CRAP!

  6. Love the woodgrain embossing and LOVE those awesome feathers you found! How cool is that?

  7. Beautiful feathers! I love how you have kept them on neutrals so they get the full focus.


Thanks for visiting! I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading them!
