Grandson Garrett is turning 16

I had way too much fun with this card, getting ready for this very special birthday.  Used Cloud paper, Digital Images, Die Cut Grass at roadside, and chalk marker for center line on road.  Note the car keys in his hand.

Garden Collage

Sure should have recorded this one when I first made it, now have to try to recall what I did and how - fat chance!
Base card was a Wausau Blue, with Green Galore, Black, Crumb Cake, and Watercolor Paper.
Base was 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Green was 3 1/4 x 3, and 3/4 x 1 3/4.  Black was 3 x 2 3/4, 5 1/2 x 1 1/4, 5/8 x 1 5/8.  Crumb Cake 1 x 5 1/2.  Watercolor 2 3/4 x 2 1/2, and 1/2 x 1 1/2.
Used SU Markers: Barely Banana, Tempting Turquoise and Creamy Caramel with Aqua Painter.  Small Gingham Ribbon, Turquoise Rhinestones.  Fussy Cut Bird and affix with dimensionals.  Green layer is also attached with dimensionals.  A hint of glitter on the butterfly and one the bird.   Hope that's everything.

Four Feathers - Two ways

  Card 1 is Tan (Wausau) on Crumb Cake. 
Card 2 is White on White.

Stamps :  Four Feathers. Ink:  Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Feathers Framelits Dies, Woodgrain Embossing Folder,   Big Shot, 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon, Stampin Dimensionals,
(I Used Distressed Lines EF, plus Elegance or Lattice EF on feather)
Card Cuts:
Base Color:  8 ½ x 5 ½,   4 ¼ x 3
2nd Color:  5 ¼ x 4, 4 x 2 ¾

1. Fold & crease base card.  Run 2nd color (5 ¼ x 4) thru Emb. Folder.  Affix to base using dimensionals.
2. Affix Base Color ( 4 ¼ x 3) to card. 
3. Stamp feather onto 2nd color layer (4 x 2 ¾) at angle.  Stamp Sentiment.  Stamp and cut other one or two feathers.  Optional – run 1 feather through Embossing Folder.   Affix left feather.  I used Dimensional at the top and glued base of feather flat onto card.  I like this affect.   Affix to card using Dimensionals.
4.  Add tiny twine bow.
5.  Add feather to inside if desired, on back for logo if desired, and on envelope corner.  This ties everything together.
