House of Cards - April Challenge

Hello, my friends!

It's time for the April challenge at the House of Cards Challenge.
It's another really fun one!

 The April Challenge is:

Feathers and/or Colors 


Isn't that a pretty color palette? 

I managed to combine both feathers and the colors on my card. 
This was put together with the aid of my Cricut Explore Air,
and a printable kit I recently purchased. 

I printed out the background paper first,
and centered a doily on top of it.


Then I used the "print then cut" feature for all the other pieces.
I inked all the edges, and adhered them all to my card. 


Aren't they cute?
Finally, I added a little bit of bling to a few of the flowers.


Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock;
 Printable Collection: Birds of a Feather - by Meredith Cardall
Purchased at Snap Click Supply Co.
Tools: Cricut Explore Air;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Bling: Crafts - Mini Sparkles.
