What Goes Around

Isn't it interesting what becomes trendy in crafting on a smaller scale?  We do a lot of seasonal stuff so it makes sense when everyone switches gears towards Valentine's Day or Christmas.  But fish aren't a season, birds aren't a season, weather has no bounds...

Yet these themes have come up multiple times lately in my crafting groups.  Whenever that happens I do try to stretch my imagination and come up with different things for different groups.  However, sometimes the creative muse is taking a break or time is short so duplicate cards get made.
I made this card for a couple of bird themed swaps and a feathers swap.  I had fun making it as I wasn't sure where it was going except it would have a bird and some feathers on it.  I originally had some real feathers but they didn't go well with this card.  That and I hid them from myself.

Very pretty! I love the addition of the feathers.

Nice. I really like the combo of die-cut feathers with the bird image. Oddly enough, I don't think I've seen anyone else use it.

That's such a cute nesting bird, and those feathers are the perfect embellishment! Well done!

Hello Judy,

Just beautiful, the nest looks so real, and what a great addition to have feathers.

Did you COLOR that nest? Whoa.

Still snickering over "I hid them from myself". :)
