Feathers and a Last Farewell! CCMC357

We have a really fun sketch this week at Create with Connie and Mary!  I am saying a last good-bye to some retiring products that I have enjoyed and still have some on hand; my "sneak peek" is scheduled to arrive this evening (if there isn't too much flooding)!  We have been in and out of town so was just recently able to place my order!  Next week I'll have new schtuff to show!  : )

I chose to rotate the sketch clockwise one turn to make a vertical card.  The base card is white overlaid with a pattern from the Sweet Dreams DSP (Occasions catalog).  The two Lost Lagoon DSP strips are from the Moonlight DSP Stack. 

A layer of Coastal Cabana is behind the main layer of Crisp Cantaloupe.  The sentiment is heat embossed with White Craft Ink and White Embossing Powder.

Three feathers were grouped together for the focal image and anchored with a shape from the Ikat photopolymer set which I heat embossed in Silver (several layers for thick coverage).  A Basic Pearl colored with a Sharpie Marker centers the image and a knot of Baker's Twine ties the pieces together visually.

Stamps:  Four Feathers, Lovely Amazing You (photopolymer set), Eye-Catching Ikat (photopolymer set)
Inks:  VersaMark, Lost Lagoon, Basic Gray, White Craft Ink Pad
Paper:  Sweet Dreams, Moonlight DSP;  Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White, Pool Party
Accessories:  Silver and White Embossing Powders, Basic Pearl, Baked Brown Sugar Baker's Twine
Tools:  Big Shot, Feathers Framelits Dies, Heat Tool, Paper Snips

Here is the sketch for this week's challenge:

WOW - that silver embellishment is beautiful! Your whole card has a wonderfully trendy feel - the twine on the feathers adds an earthy touch too. :)

I've been thinking about you with all the flooding and tornadoes in your area! Love the feathers and the medallion on top...truly a southwest feel to your card! I'm SO sad to see the feathers retire! Great job with the sketch!
