PPA #250 Color Challenge – Feathers For You

Time for another Pals challenge.  When I first saw the color combination of this challenge, I was a little stumped.  After several unsuccessful attempts at using the three cardstock colors, the light bulb went off…USE DSP as your guide….duh!  The perfect DSP was sitting right in my stash with the Lullaby collection.

Truly the DSP did all the work for me on this card.  The rest of the card layout really just fell into place.  I cannot believe that I’ve had the Four Feathers stamp set and coordinating die for so long and have never used it until now.  Boy, I’ve been missing out and will have to make up for lost time, as I loved working with this set.

As always, the envelope received some attention, too.  For this liner, I simply stamped the feathers on a piece of copy paper and then used the Envelope Liner die to cut it out.  So simple and lightweight for mailing.

The inside of the card also received a little TLC as well as the envelope flap. I think the small strip of DSP on the envelope flap is the perfect touch, especially since that was really all the DSP I had left without cutting into a brand new piece.  I must admit that I am truly a paper miser…there is not a piece of scrap that is too small for me to save.

Komen Race For the Cure in Philadelphia on Mother’s Day.  It is our Mother’s Day tradition as our family has been very affected by this disease.  The background is the Schuylkill River and Boathouse Row.  Not the best picture of us…but a great day and cause.

Thanks so much for taking time to visit and I hope you will stop by again.

  1. I love your card, Rosanne! The feathers are some of my favorites and I hate to see them go. I do love what you did with them on the card front, inside and on the envelope too. Thanks for sharing with the Pals this week!
