you make my heart... soar!

Hello, hello!!  Back around to the end of the week.  Have a little card to share for a couple of challenges:  Poppy Sketches and Paper Crafting Challenge: 1 embellishment. 
 
When I saw the Poppy Sketches layout I didn't think I would be making anything... it is very much outside my comfort zone, but then I thought about my much loved Feather Finery set and an idea was born!   I stamped the feathers in kraft colored ink and then added the little spots using dark green and purple inks.  Every time I have used this stamp set that is how I have stamped the feathers and honestly... i love it!  Added the sentiment, the strips of patterned paper along the side and was ready to call it good.  Then I saw Kimberly (she is on the design team!) had posted a card for Paper Crafting Challenge: 1 embellishment and so I decided to add the little heart.  I stamped the outer heart using the purple ink and then dyed a wood veneer heart using the dark green ink.

Thanks for stopping by...  hoping to get some projects made using some of the techniques I have been learning in the OCC Watercolor for Card Makers classes.

Supplies:  Cardstock: PTI white; SU! kraft; Patterned Paper:  PTI & SU!; Ink:  SU! Crumb Cake & Gumball Green; Memento Grape Jelly & Tuxedo Black; Dies:  PTI feather dies; Studio Calico wood veneer heart
