Colorful Birthday

Hi everyone! I hope that you're have a good week so far! It has been so, so, so cold here! With the wind, it felt like -20 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday morning! Brr! We definitely stayed inside yesterday!

 Anyways, I have a fun card to share with you for the current Avery Elle challenge, which is all about masking! Here is the card that I created:

This card features Avery Elle's "Brushed" and "Look Up" stamp sets. I started this card by stamping the sentiment onto card stock and cutting it out to create a mask. I lightly taped it to the card base, and then I stamped the feathers over top of the mark. Then I removed the mask and stamped the sentiment onto the card base. After I had everything stamped, I colored the feathers with Prismacolor pencils and I made sure to leave some space around the sentiment. Here is a close up:

I really like how simple and cute this turned out. I'm sure that a friend will really like this for their birthday! Well, thanks for stopping by and I hope that you enjoy the rest of your week! :)
