Well, it's officially the end of the holidays. Tomorrow it's all about getting up at an ungodly hour, out in the cold and dark. I've been trying to keep myself busy in the craft room to keep me from thinking about going back to work. It always seems harder when you have had a good few weeks off, doesn't it.
I was inspired by a few new challenges to create a card today. I was inspired by the neutral colours against the navy and deep green in the inspiration image over at Paper Smooches. I also thought the feathers would go with the theme of cozy - soft and fluffy, like the soft fluffy skins in the image. I was also inspired by the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and just about made it before the deadline of the challenge. I was also inspired by the new theme over at CAS Mixup where the theme this month is stamping + liquid colours + your choice (I chose die cutting).
