Textured Feathers (a Mother's Day card) with Savannah O'Gwynn

Hello, friends:}

Savannah O'Gwynn here, and today I'm sharing a card that I created a couple of weeks back-- when I was doing my feather series! I needed a card to match a feather necklace that I made for Trav's mom for Mother's Day. ***Super sorry that I'm sick and sound a bit different! I'm on vocal rest for a week- hopefully that will help my throat feel better:) 

For this card, I used embossing paste to create texture on some paper, die cut the feathers, and then stamped a sentiment on them. LOVE! 

Here's the video *****Be sure to change your settings to HD before watching! THANKS!
