Flowers and Feathers

This is one of my favourites from the week's cards inspired by Sue Wilson. The feathers are from our hens and the flower from Lee (thank you again!).I would love a really dark brown archival ink pad like the colour of that card, but the closest I can get is "Coffee", which still has too much red in it for me.
"Feathers and flowers"

The Justrite and Creative Expressions stamps on the right are stamped with coffee archival, heat-embossed in clear, and diecut using the matching labels 4 dies. I still love the look of those layered labels 4 on the Filigree background.


Here, I tried the layout using Labels One diecuts in place of the labels four. It's pretty, but I don't think it works as well.

Well that's it for the "Inspired By... Sue Wilson" collection. I hope you'll pop by Sue's blog and be inspired too.

Today would have been my Dad's 67th birthday. Happy birthday Dad.
