You Are My Heart

Today I have a card to share that I made as a Valentine (it says Happy Valentine's Day inside) but it could also be used as an Anniversary card or a Birthday card by stamping a different sentiment inside.

I just love these feathers from the Waltzingmouse set Funky Feathers - notice the little curlys at the tops - that's a separate stamp.  I paired the feathers with a sentiment from Hearts Squared by Papertrey Ink.  Then I simply added some Winter Blend sequins from Avery Elle (some are clear and some are white!).  The white panel is popped up on foam dots.  I also adhered a white panel inside since it's a black card base.

I used the Cas(e) this Sketch for my card design.  I really went pretty literal this time using the feathers like the inspiration.
ETA:  I'm also entering this in the Stamplorations challenge - Feathers.

Stamps:  Funky Feathers - Waltzingmouse, You are My Heart from Hearts Squared - PTI
Paper:  White, True Black - PTI
