CAS-ual Fridays #52


Hooray for the weekend!  I hope your Friday gets off to a great start!

It's time for a new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays, and I can't wait to see your clean and simple designs with our theme this week:  Feathered Friends.  There are so many fabulous bird images out there, and I'm really looking forward to seeing them in the gallery!


Our sponsor this week is Annabelle Stamps, and they are generously offering up a $20 gift certificate to this week's winner at CAS-ual Fridays.


For my card, I used a bird from WPlus9's Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions and perched him on a set of stitched lines (inspired by an image in WPlus9's Heartfelt Mix stamp set).

The sentiment is from Annabelle Stamps' Garden Silhouettes, stamped in SU's Island Indigo.

I debossed a panel of Basic Gray cardstock with woodgrain, then die cut a window to frame the image and sentiment.  For a pop of color, I added a punched and layered yellow flower with a rhinestone center.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Island Indigo, Basic Gray), Papertrey Ink (White)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions), Annabelle Stamps (Garden Silhouettes)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Island Indigo)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (woodgrain impression plate, Mat Stack 1 die), Marvy Uchida (flower punch)
Accessories:  Queen & Co. (rhinestone), DMC floss

I hope you'll play along with us this week!  Be sure to stop by each of the DT blogs to be inspired, then get crafting!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Christina, love this simple beauty! The wood grain looks great with the bird. I like that you used the same ink for the bird as the background. Hope you have a nice Mother's Day!
