Crafts 4 Eternity-Embellishment Challenge

I don't know where the weeks go! It does not seem 2 minutes since my last post & I'm already late with this one. Actually I did quite a bit of trial & error, more so than usual!! Can I just say, don't bother trying to Glimmer Mist a feather!

Anyway, on to our challenge this week. If you haven't already seen it at the C4E blog, this week it is an embellishemnt challenge & we want you to use the following items on your card:-
1 A feather
2. A doily
3. A charm

I used a Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy girl that I have reached for on a number of occasions but never actually ended up using. Finally she's been inked up & I just love her. I coloured her with Distress Inks & cut her out with a Nesties die. I also distressed the doily & the feather a little to tone down how white they were. The swirl is a Magnolia die cut I finally bit the bullet & treated myself too from Bunny Zoe's where I also got the bird charm. The papers are Kaisercraft-Secret Bird Society

This week's prize at C4E is this adorable digi, generously donated by my lovely D-Teamie Suzette who owns, Crafty Sentiments. Isn't he adorable?! Pop on over to the C4E blog to see more inspiration from my wonderful  D-Teamies.

I'm also entering this card at Stamptacular Sunday, wher ehte challenge is 'Girls & Swirls'. Also at Totally Gorjuss the challenge is 'Fluffy'. I don't know if birds count as fluffy, but my feather certainly is!

Well that's all for now. Thanks so much for looking. I'll be back in a few hours time, with My Secret Crafter's card!

Big Hugs,
Andie xx

what a funky card. i loved these sassy girl stamps...think I may have to get myself some. Oh yeah and thanks for the tip on not trying to glimmer mist a feather. I reckon there should be somewhere that people can put what not to try....we could all then refer to it and save ourselves time and frustration..Thanks for joining us at Stamptacular this week we hope to see you again soon.
