Spring cleaning

...my life. ;)
It's crazy how much stuff I need to clean and work on right now, and one of those things I need to get done is get the winner for the Throwback Tuesday posts! And that winner is...

Congrats Terry! Please e-mail me within two weeks for deets on the goodies! :)

Today, I'll be working up on scheduling lots of Throwback Tuesday posts so I don't get behind, like this past time. ;)
Also, a card I made for this months Hero Arts contest...

People, there is NO patterned paper on this card! Can you believe it, coming from this patterned paper loving girl?!
The feather design was super fun (though a little time consuming) to make - I stamped the feather (it's a single image) once on the watercolor cardstock with Versamark, then covered it with some embossing powder, then repeated about a bazillion times. The reason for stopping after each stamping to cover with powder was because I couldn't see my last impression without the powder, and I didn't want any overlapping.
Topped off with an embossed sentiment (I was in a little bit of an embossing craze ;)) and some pearls.

The card is much prettier in real life, where you can see the colors better.

Anywho, that's it for today!
Thanks so much for stopping in today, and God bless!
