Feather Card and CCC08

I have a bright and happy card for this weeks Creative Challenge Club!
Feathers are so popular in card making right now and I'm so glad I joined in on the trend.
Here's our sketch for the week:
This sketch is so clean and simple and I love it! I had so much fun coming up with my card and love how it turned out.

I knew when I saw the sketch that I wanted to use the "Life Doesn't Have To Be Perfect To Be Wonderful" stamp by Stampin' Up! I haven't used it yet and just knew it would be a perfect fit for this challenge.

I used a circle punch to crop the feather shapes, scored a line down the middle and then used my paper snips to turn the simple shape into a feather! 
I thought I was being so clever at first by using my fringe scissors but they didn't work as I had hoped for this. Just so ya know!
The inside of this card even got a little attention. I love stamping on the insides of my card and this was no exception. It got a great big star stamp AND a stamped and die cut start layered over as well. I have this thing about doing things in odd numbers but broke my rule with the stars. For some reason 2 stars seemed perfect and 3 would-have could-have been too much!

To finished it off I made a custom envelope with my envelope punch board, added a little washi tape action to the front and already know who this card is going to!
Hope it brightens their day!

Don't forget to upload your cards to the Creative Challenge Club (like at the top). They do a prize when they have 20 or more entries!

Happy Stampin'!
