Catitude Pheasant

Happy Weekend, and thanks for stopping by.
My back pain, from my surgery two weeks ago, is easing up a bit and I was able to make a couple of cards this weekend.
The first one is for my good friend Betty who is going through chemo, I've made it out to her cats from my cat. I think she will get a nice chuckle out of it.

I love how rich the addition of the gold pen makes the card.

My second card uses the Pheasant from one of the new stamp sets from Stampin' Up! called Autumn Days. I've added quite a few elements to this card starting with the paper lace. I made the lace using my new Silhouette from Quikutz. Isn't it beautiful! I added half back pearls to it for even more dimension. The green leaf fronds are made using a Martha punch. The pheasant and yellow card stock were cut out using the same nestie that I used for the cat in the above post.

Close up of the lace and pearls. It's so pretty!!

I used my gold pen again, then added a cluster of primas, half pearls and more fronds.

That's it for today.
Thanks for stopping by,
