First Handcrafted Card - Feathers In My Cap Card for My Mother

Hi all.  It has been a pretty miserable time here for the last month and a half.  Internet has been spotty at best, cold, snow, frozen pipes, and other trials!  But, I was able to find a few moments to myself last night, and crafted this card for my  mother.  However, I think it was more for me, to quiet my racing mind.  It is my very first attempt at a truly handcrafted card. 

I used Ribbon from Offray, my little bling is from a bargin bag from Michaels , paper by The Paper Company, Ivory Elegant Leaf On, feathery yarn from an unnamed roll I got from Big Lots, the frame and Image  - Feather in my cap Silhouette from Floppy Latte Designs, cut on my cutting machine from my digital stamp file.  My silhouettes are available at  Under Artists > Floppy Latte Designs, or under Silhouettes.    I know the photo is  not great, but I have to work out all the kinks in taking pictures of cards.  Hope you like.  My mom will be recieving this card sometime this coming week. 

Thanks for stopping by,
