Vintage Wings Embroidery Floss Card for the OCC

Jenn had a great challenge for us this week. Use embroidery floss for something other than embroidery! Sounds like fun right? Our DT and Guest Designer did an AWESOME job AND PTI also gave lots of ideas in their March customer blog hop last month. So no excuse when it comes to inspiration. My entry for that blog hop is HERE. But this card is much nicer!!

I decided against the typical uses like tying bows or threading buttons. It took me a while but I finally used the floss to cover these little wooden wings I bought on Etsy. I looped it so (hopefully) it would look like feathers! I hope I succeeded!

You definitely succeeded with those wings! They look very feathery. Thanks for doing a great job with my challenge this week!

Awesome piece of work, Rebecca. You totally nailed this challenge. I'm sitting here drooling over your embroidery floss wings - they are just marvelous. I love everything about your card (and btw, I took a look at the card you said you CASEd and couldn't see much CASE-ing there, but I like yours much better!).

Have a great weekend!
