Something Real for LIM

A new week and a new challenge at Less is More - this week it is to use something real.  I often save little things that I think I might be able to use on a card - a leather tag, an interesting button, some amazing fabric - I'm sure I'm not alone in doing this - but do you think I could find these 'treasures' this morning?  Of course not - that is the way it is - so I had to search in my craft room and came across some feathers fortunately, so this is what I used.

I trimmed it a little to complement my stamped feather, which was heat embossed and sponged over with grey, and added a small silver bow, considering it suitable for a sympathy card.  The stamped feather and sentiment is by Hot off the Press.  The stitched frame is by Mama Elephant in their Basic Set.


  1. Oh my, that feather looks so elegant and stylish! This design could work for many different occasions with different colored feathers and sentiments... Great idea! The little bow and the die cut frame add a lot of interest. Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!
