GG's Birthday card

 I wanted to post this card earlier since it was finished, but made myself wait until I know that my grandma received it first. Didn't want to take the chance that she would see it online first, wouldn't want to ruin the surprise of seeing in person first.
 I was just going to go for the inlay technique with the blue and yellow feathers, but decided to add the original feather cut out at the last minute. Having 3 looked better to me than just the 2. I used some paper from a 6x6 MME pack and die cut them using the Feathers from My Favorite Things. I distressed the edges using Pumice Stone and stamped the sentiment in Memento Luxe Rich Cocoa. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. To finish it off added some Old paper distress stickles to the feathers and added some twine from Lawn Fawn. You can't really tell from the photo but the top feathers sides are slightly popped up.

 Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!!!
