CAS-ual Friday Card

Good evening - a quick share of a card I finished for the CAS-ual Friday challenge which is Feathered Friends.  I needed a thank you card and this little stamp says it all - it is a very small stamp so I decided to scale down the size of the card.  This card is only 3.375 x 5 inches. 

I was inspired by my friend Ivanka's card.  She used the technical term "plopped" her ink pad on her card base.  I tried that - did not work - so I just colored a piece of watercolor paper with some ink.  I stamped my image and then cut the inked image out with a Spellbinder's die cut.  I cut the next size die cut to mat the image with.  Of course - it looked too plain to me - (this is clean and simple for me) so I added am embossed piece of watercolor paper which I pop dotted.  I needed a little contrast so added a piece of black houndstooth and a pink bow tied with some black tie. 

I hope you like my feathered friend card.

I love the pink, white and of my very favorite color combos! Such a great design the touch of embossing. Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

I love the unusual shapes on this card, but they all work perfectly together with the pink and black!!
