Feathers, Thanksgiving and SSIC105

Happy Labor Day! Hope you are enjoying a day of rest and relaxation with your family!

You must be wondering how in the world the three items in my title can be related? Over the last few weeks, I have been experimenting with using unconventional items on my cards. Yesterday I used a rose embellie on my card made from a zipper. And today I used feathers in the corners to draw attention to my central design. I recently received this stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs called Give Thanks. Even though Thanksgiving is still a few months away, we have had a few mornings with a "chill" in the air. So that brings me to number three, Stampin' Sisters In Christ. They have asked those playing along in this weeks challenge to use muted colors, nothing bright! And what says muted more than orange, mustard yellow and a fall plaid? And don't forget the feathers! Make it a great one... Blessings...
