Virginia's View Challenge

Hi everyone,
Just a quick post from me today...the theme this month for Virginia's View Challenge is 'All Things Metallic. While looking through my embossing powders, I spotted this Zing Copper Glitter EP that I've used before, and thought it was perfect for this feather and oversized sentiment:




I apologize for the dark background on this photo...we've had overcast skies for the past few days, and I had to use my light box. In real life, the feather and sentiment really sparkle, and combined with the color combo, I think this would be a great card for my hubby :)

Well, that's it for me...Thanks so much for stopping by ~
