CAS Feathers

There's not much to say about this card as it's a really simple design. Apart from the card base, this card has been entirely made of different paper scraps, all in different shades of grey. Even the embroidery thread is a leftover, from a cross-stitching set.
I chose to tear two of the paper panels - I like the simple effect of torn paper - and the feathers have been made with a set of dies from Magnolia. I also added 3 pearls.
I haven't added a sentiment though, and I'm not sure that I will. At least for now I'd like to keep my options open, as I think it can be used as a birthday card for a man or a woman, a thank you card, a thinking of you card, or even perhaps a with sympathy card...

This card is for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #31 Anything Goes
2) That Craft Place - Monochrome
3) LEJ Designs - #64 Distressing Or Paper Tearing
4) ABC Challenges - Use Scraps
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Pia, this is CAS perfection! I love the torn paper look and you are so brave o go with all greys, but it really worked. I don't think you need to add a sentiment, I think it is just right. I think this would work for the challenge at Retro Sketches this week-take a look. Thanks for joining us at Inkspirational, you know I love to see your projects x

Love this card Pia. Love the choice of grey for the Monochrome and the leaves offer a great contrast. The pearls that added finishing touch. I think I am with you I wouldn't add a sentiment - add it to the inside. Love your creative work!! Take care my friend. Thanks for sharing with us at Inkspirational. Meighan DT
