Vintage Card with Feathers

Finally had time to play this weekend, after a little shopping. This creation was made for my Father-in-law. Every year I've been making him a fathers day card. This year I used Joan's Garden challenge to complete my card.  Here are the requriments
Stamp a background 
Do a Vintage Card 
Use Olive and Tan Colors - and any accent color 
Use some kind of feathers (you might have to kill a chicken LOL)
Since I love vintage, and had recently purchased a set of mini Prmia stamps for my ACT's I loaded up up my block
 And went for it. For my focal image I used a TH stamp. I can't find the paper with the name of the set right now.
While I was shopping I picked up some felt for making flowers and it came to me then to make a vintage mens hat band. Smashed my bottle cap on my cuttlebug added an inside used thick embossing powder stuck the feathers to the back and added it to the hat band. 
There you have it.
I hope you stop back for my ACT card a bit later. 
Thanks so much for stopping by, I love hearing everyones take on my creations.

I love this card - honestly I was wanting to make something with a vintage car but couldn't figure out where to put the feathers. Cute

You will get such great use out of theses stamps! I love how it came together. The bottle cap embellishment worked great with the feathers.


Love your use of the feathers!
