CAS Challenge

I'm so excited to be on the Splitcoaststampers CAS Challenge
design team for spring of 2014.
Here's the card I made for today's challenge:
The challenge was to use only neutral colors on your card.
The dessert option was to use a natural element.
This was the inspiration picture to go along with this challenge:
feathered tones 10.3.13 
I started by using a wood grain embossing folder ( sizzix) and the lightly sponging
Rangers Distress Ink (vintage photo)  over it.
Next I cut a strip from it and matted it on dark brown cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment ( Reverse Confetti Stamps- paper crane) in same
vintage photo distress ink.
 Then I used a little circle of cork to anchor the feather...which, by the way,
I stole from the cat's toy
that hangs from the cat tree!
I figure that which does not run away from me is fair game!
I hope you have enjoyed this post.
till next time,


  1. Congrats on making the Spring Design Team. I look forward to seeing the cards you design:) The wood texture piece is great. It looks like a real piece of wood.
