embellish magazine - vintage challenge

i've had this card done for a while, but because of one reason or another, i'm just able to post it now! i hate when that happens! :) ha ha!

i made this card for the most recent embellish magazine challenge. the colors were yellow, green and rust, and the card had to be made in a vintage style. vintage style is sooo pretty when it's done right, but it's totally not my style. i definately went out of my comfrot zone. but that's ok every once in a while, right?

and here's my card:

i used some vintage-y inspired patterned paper for the background of the card. and then i used some kraft cardstock for the sentiment (which is popped up for dimension). i love the feathers! i try to use feathers when i can in cards, because it's unexpected, but feathers are a hard medium to work with! so i am not always successful. in the case though, i think it works! something about feathers says vintage to me.

oh, and something about feathers, says 'snack' to my cat (phoenix) - because right after i took the pictures of my card, he started attacking it and trying to eat the feathers... lovely. that's pretty much phoenix in a nutshell! :) it's just a good thing there weren't any loose strings hanging from the card...



  1. Lovely touch adding the feathers! Thanks for joining the Embellish vintage color challenge.
