Better Together

Happy Friday!!  It's time for another challenge from Jo's Scrap Shack.  As always, we are now an Anything Goes challenge and our sponsors for this week are Oddball Art and Sasayaki Glitter. 

So, I have two cards for you today, using images from each of the sponsors.  First up is the card I made using an image from Oddball Art:
I won this feather image a couple months ago.  There are actually three different images, but I used one twice to create this cluster.  I heat embossed the sentiment in silver and added some antique silver frantage powder to the feathers.  I love the dimension and texture it gives.  This was an anniversary card for my sister and brother-in-law so here is the inside.
I stamped the sentiment and added a different feather image.  I colored it the same, but instead of adding the frantage, I added silver paint pen dots to keep it flat on the inside.
     My second card uses an image from Sasayaki Glitter that I was given for this challenge:
 Isn't she so sweet?!  I think this would be perfect for a little girl birthday card, but would also work for a female of any age.  I used, vellum, mulberry paper, ribbon, and lots of pink--it's definitely girly!
