Feathers and Fur....

Welcome to the weekend....this week at Sugar Creek Hollow we are featuring the theme "Feathers and Fur" asking you to create a card or project in a vintage/shabby chic style using either some type of bird or animal.




I love my card this week as I am a big fan of gingham...country girl at heart. I am so thankful to Lilac and Lavender for offering these as a freebie. They offer gorgeous vintage images if you are looking for a great spot to go browsing. I used the main image and tags featuring the rooster. 
My papers are from Samantha Walkers digital set "Honey" featuring the Golden Sunlight set.



The tags come with a sentiment and set of six but I cut out three and distressed these as well as the layers with vintage photo ink.
Hope you can join in with us this week. We love to visit with you and see your creations.

Stay safe and enjoy your weekend. I will keep those in the path of the storm in my prayers.

Entered in the following challenges:

Sweet Pea Stampers Use a digital stamp
Forever Friends Use animals/birds/butterflies
Crafts and Me Favorite Color Combo- mine is red/yellow

Hi Patti,
I'm also a big fan of gingham, love the "rustic country feel" to it. Lovely image (I'll go and check it out, thanks for the tip) and a gorgeous card.
