a feathery hello...

Hello friends!!  A quick share today... this is a little card that I made for the current Splitcoaststampers CAS challenge... use neutrals.  Several months ago I was out walking the dog and found this pretty little feather.  Finally I found the right project to use it on.

I started with a soft stone card base and stamped the circles image from the PRS set Positive Thoughts set using SU!'s Smoky Slate ink.  I added the splatter image using Hero Art's silver ink, but it is hard to tell that it is actually silver.  The hello was stamped in black and then I added the feather, a twine bow and the stars.   I guess this would fall into the "freestyle/collage" category of cardmaking... I just think it is pretty darn sweet!


ETA - At the suggestion of my sweet bloggy friend, Anita, I'm going to link this up to CAS-ual Fridays shades of grey challenge.

Thanks for stopping by...
