My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge! All feathers!

Good afternoon!  I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!   We had family in town and it was wonderful to have everyone around to share the holidays.   I decorated my house for Christmas, we start celebrating next weekend!  What!!!  Time is flying by for me!    I have my whole family coming next weekend for Christmas so I was really busy decorating, wrapping and getting ready for another fun weekend!

For this week's sketch, I stuck straight to the sketch and made a card using the Accent It Feathers and Arrows die from My Favorite Things.     My brain had way to much to process this week so it was easy to stick to the sketch.   I have been making so many Christmas cards, I decided to go with a sherbet color scheme to change it up a bit.  

I used a new background stamp from MFT called Winter Waves.  It was stamped on Stone Grey cardstock and cut out with the Blueprints 13 frame with stitching.   I stamped the background stamp using Simon Says Stamp Fog dye ink using my MISTI to get the background fully stamped.    Like I said above, I wanted a palette of sherbet colors for my card and used Peach Bellini, Coral Crush, Persimmon, Tangy Orange and Tickled Pink.    

The feathers were cut out using the Accent it Feathers and Arrows die and I used the small feather.   The die adds the detail to the feather and allows you to bend slightly to pop up off the card stock.    The panel was added straight to a white card stock base and the feathers add dimension to the card. 

The sentiment was stamped on a strip of Basic Black cardstock from Stampin Up! and I used a greeting from MFT Top Dog and masked off part of the greeting to get Birthday Wishes.    Birthday wishes was stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.   I added some 4 mm and 6 mm Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish it off.   
Super simple card design but love the colors and the pop of black and white for the sentiment.   

Thanks for joining me today!    I hope you have an awesome week!
