I bought feathers!!!

Every time I see a card embellished with feathers I make a mental note to pick some up because I really like the way they look on cards.  Besides, how can you make red hat cards without feathers?

I ran the flowered BG paper through the cuttlebug with my favorite embossing folder to give it some texture. This hat is a digi from 
Steph H.  I printed it twice; one image I die cut using a scalloped oval die before coloring, the second I cut off just the band so I could pop it onto the hat.  Then I added a tiny purple butterfly bling right below the feathers.

I am entering this card in these challenges:
Crafting by Designs Challenge - Anything Goes with Dilly Beans
Flutterby Wednesday #242 - flowers,butterfly,diecut

  2. Love how you popped the band on your hat Debi and the embossed background is perfect.

  3. Very creative! Great use of the feather and I like the embossing on the patterend paper. It almost makes it look like fabric. So glad that you joined us at Inkspirational!
