FMS226 - Again

Happy Friday, peeps!  This is what we woke up to in SE PA this morning:

Yep!  Winter is not finished with us yet!  It's really not bad; the roads are clear and it's almost over, and it is more of a nuisance than anything!  Another nuisance is a nasty head cold that has walloped me and is sapping my energy and creativity!  I used the FMS sketch again just because I was too tired to look for another one!  Here it is:

I did pull out the SAB Botanical Gardens Vellum stack as well as some Watermelon Wonder DSP for this particular was the first time I used these pretty vellum prints!

I layered the vellum over the DSP, which was layered on a Watermelon Wonder panel and heat-embossed a sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes card kit (again...laziness ruled) and as you can see, I didn't use an Embossing Buddy, so my sentiment has some little additional flecks:

Still looks pretty on the vellum, though....and to carry through the feathers that are printed on the vellum, I diecut two feathers, folded them in half and ran them through my crimper to get this cool effect:

My horizontal panel is from the Color Me Irresistible Specialty pack...can you see the embossed dots?  It's subtle, but I love how they complement the polka-dotted DSP.  A baker's twine bow completes my card!  Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy wanted to make a card yesterday for my friend and she specifically asked for a cardinal:

  and added sequin embellishments:

which she decorated some more!  I particularly like the eyelashes on the cardinal!  Enjoy your day!


  1. Hope you'll feel better soon! We're still getting snow in NJ, but roads are clear.

  2. LeAnne LOVE your card. Love how you embossed the little feathers! I CAN see the subtle polka dots on the strip and really like the heat embossed vellum topper. So pretty....
    Now your little artist certainly takes after someone we know! Beautiful!
    Wow how she's grown.

  3. Love the crimped feathers! Very cool!

  4. Sure hope you feel better soon LeAnne. Your card makes my heart happy with all of those polka dots and those crinkly feathers! Cassidy's card is adorable, love those eyelashes!!

  5. Oh my more snow! Sorry to hear you are under the weather too - having just had a holiday that really is bad luck. Love today's card - the vellum and crimped feathers are gorgeous! Love Cassidy's Cardinal too - those eyelashes are the best!

  6. Beautiful card, LeAnne! The white looks so crisp and I love that vellum. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
