Feathery "Thinking of You" for the Muse

Hope everyone in North America is enjoying their long weekend! It's very hot and dry here, feeling more like summer than fall!

When I saw Carol's card for the Muse Challenge #131 I was immediately inspired to bring out my feathers from STAMPlorations again! Since we had company I only had a chance to make a card this afternoon, entering in the last minute! But that's nothing new, right?

Here is Carol's fabulous card






and my take on it


keepintouchcards.blogspot.com



Stamps: STAMPlorations (feathers, sentiment), Hero Arts (background strip)
Other: Caran d'Ache (watercolor crayons)

I used the same feather set as Carol, almost the same layout and the same colors! 
The background was made with watercolor crayons scribbled on a piece of card stock and blended with a moist baby wipe. It's quick and easy and I like how it looks. Added a strip of background paper that I found in one of my snippet boxes (yes, I have several - don't you?) and mounted everything on a blue card. 


Challenges:


(where Sarn is prefect this week and I heard there was lots of chocolate to be found...)



Wishing you a fantastic week,
Susanne
