This is my Card Sketch #3 for the Monthly Challenge Forum over at Crafting Circle. Our instructions were to follow the Sketches and the Extra Credits that were picked by the monthly host. Since the Sketch showed Feathers, I thought it was a perfect time to pull out this unused Die-namic Dies by My Favorite Things. The real Feather is compliments of my bird!

This was such a simple card to make because there is no image to color. The Pattern Paper is a single sheet from Hobby Lobby and the small pieces of Cardstock were in my scraps pile.  The Hemp Twine is from My Favorite Things.

If you have time, please come and join us. It’s a “just for fun” challenge and gives you something fun to keep you busy.

Thanks for dropping in.

    Dee, I love this. So CAS. Did you outline the feathers with a black pen? Really makes them ‘pop’. And I love your birdies feather. So pretty. What kind is it?

      Thanks Merrie. Yes, I did the feathers in white cardstock but they didn’t show up well, so I outlined them with a dark gray Copic Marker. I have a pretty yellow, white and a touch of aqua parakeet. He talks up a storm.
