I made this card for today's Teapotter challenge, which was to include feathers on your card. I stamped my fluffy, feathery friend to represent. :) The flower die cut was a RAK but was not embossed so I had to wing it as far as the watercoloring went. I was inspired by this card in our FS381, Peggy's gallery. CONGRATS! You have a lovely gallery full of beautiful cards that I could never come close to casing. :) I am also submitting my card for the SC CAS274 to bring May flowers. As well, I am submitting it for the current Casology96 challenge, flowers and the current ATC39 , texture.
THANK YOU for looking! :)

I am always impressed when someone can cover so many challenges in one card! WHOO-HOOO! Love your little fluffy feathered guy in front of that beautifully colored die cut! Your fussy cutting is awesome...You have used one of my most favorite EF as a background and I thank you for joining in on my week of being FS.

Oh Gabby - I love that bird. I need to use mine more (I'm pretty sure I thought that last time I saw one of your cards with it, too). He looks so soft and fluffy and perfectly feathery. The flowers are lovely too - at first, despite the small leaves, they made me think of hollyhocks but when I came back to comment they started to remind me of flowering quince. I really like your layering on this - the whole thing has something of an Asian feel for me with the simple colour palette and clean layout.
