Fine Feather Celebrate You card

Hi again stamping friends, I hope your Sunday went well. I cleaned my office/stamp room today and have to finish and can my salsa tomorrow night. It has been chilly out but sunny day anyway which is nice. I wanted to wash my car as it is so disgustingly dirty. It needs to be washed inside and out. It was supposed to be 70 but barely reached 50. We had a heavy frost this morning. I need to find my scraper and gloves. I was glad I turned on my remote start on this morning so it could defrost some of the ice off when I got in my car this morning for church. A friend gave me this HUGE Cabbage at church today that I added to the soup I made. I think I could feed an army with that big cabbage.  My Mom is back from her Georgia bus trip so it is nice to talk to her again. So much for me not blogging on the weekend right. LOL!

 I had this Fine Feather die cut already stamped and laying on my desk from using the Fine Feather set before and when I saw the Paper Players challenge I finished off my card for that challenge.  My card base is Basic Gray, second layer Tempting Turquoise that I textured with the Woodgrain EF. The feathers are stamped in Early Espresso,  Basic  Gray stamped off, and Tempting Turquoise onto Naturals Ivory Card Stock and then die cut with the Labels Collection Framelits. My squared off banners are Basic Gray and the Early Espresso Core' dinations Card Stock that I sanded off. The Basic Gray banners are wheeled with the Chamomile wheel. I stamped the Celebrate You from the Send Me Soaring stamp set. I die cut that out with the smallest Floral Frames  Framelits. I sponged around both the Framelits and paper pierced around each of them. The Labels Framelits have an exact paper piercing pack that goes with it called Essentials Paper Piecing Pack. I colored the pearls with a gray sharpie and let them dry and then added them to my card.
