Thanks Chickie

Here's my card for the current Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge.  I combined the beachy color scheme with this week's sketch from The Paper Players to make a thank you card.

Thanks Chickie card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Waltzingmouse Stamps
I used a pair of feathers in place of the large oval image at the left side of the sketch.  The feathers were stamped with pigment inks, then die cut with the matching shaped die.  I arranged them on a dotted patterned paper panel along with a trio of fishtail flag strips.  The "thanks chickie" sentiment was stamped on the aqua strip using brown pigment ink.  I matted the finished panel on kraft cardstock, then adhered it to an aqua card base.  A trio of minty sequins from Pretty Pink Posh arranged around the card finished the design.

Materials Used:
Funky Feathers stamp set, Funky Feathers dies (Waltzingmouse Stamps); Memento Luxe Morocco, Toffee Crunch, and Rich Cocoa inks (Tsukineko); Aqua Mist cardstock (Papertrey Ink); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax and Fishtail Flag Layers Stax dies (My Favorite Things); Now and Then-Dorothy 6x6 paper pad (My Mind's Eye); Fresh Mint sequins (Pretty Pink Posh); foam tape
