Global Design Project 224 You're The Best

Happy Thursday evening! I had a bit of time to just make something. One of my goals for the new year is to find joy again. It can be joy from my spiritual journey or even joy in stamping. Today I found joy in my craft pit! I am calling it the pit because that is what it looks like right now! 

I have to tell you that when I first took a peek at this challenge, I was like, "Meh! Not my jam!". Then I let it soak in while looking at this feather die cut. It really isn't my usual style... but I love it and I hope you do to! Let me give you the details. 

The feather! The feather is what started this card! The feather was die cut out of regular Whisper White card stock then colored with Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Highland Heather Stampin' Blends Combo Packs. I just love the way this feather turned out. I lightly sponged a Pool Party background before adding Heat Embossed gold splatters. To adhere the feather I sponged Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back and adhered it my card front. My sentiment is from the sentiment set in the Mini Catalog called "Thanks For The Laughs". I chose to use Stazon Black before punching it with the Classic Label punch. A bit of Silver Metallic Thread loops was the perfect touch before adhering it with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. This is nicely layered onto a distressed piece of Basic Black and is nicely layered onto a Thick Whisper White card base. WHOA! I almost forgot the Metallic Pearls! The perfect touch, right?!

I had so much fun playing along with this challenge! Have a great evening!
