CTD307 & CTS90 Challenge

It's Labor Day, which in the world of the USPS means, day off, but tomorrow will be a nightmare. So I am doing my best to enjoy my paid day off.
So what better way to enjoy then to make some cards!
As you already know I love doing challenges, so I decided today to incorporate two challenges into one card. The Case this Sketch and Color Throwdown challenges.

So I knew the colors and the sketch, but from their I let my creativity go WILD. 
I remembered at SU convention, Shelli showed how to make these awesome feathers using a die and punch (I'm not telling here, cause it will spoil it for my September class people).

 I created the background paper using the shaving cream and reinkers, but I did use glossy paper. I had some pieces laying around and wanted to see if the effect was different.
So here's my creation
Would love to hear your comments!
Remember the paper bundle sampler going on right now, and make sure you become a follower of my blog, I am going to be drawing at winner October 1st.


  1. So pretty Annie. Love those hand made feathers. The marbled background looks fantastic. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown this week.

  2. Oh, this is so pretty! Wonderful take on the sketch!
