shake your tail-feather for CAS-ual Fridays.

There was an old Nelly song back in the day (i'm so old) and the whole song and video was all about shaking your tail-feather (and obviously, many close-to-naked women obliged.)

Just in case you were wondering about the background of my card... inspiration is a funny thing sometimes!

I used lawn fawn's "quinn's abcs" for the letters (and had a mask a few for them to fit the right way....)  The feather, from "lovestruck," was stamped once near the "it's your birthday" sentiment, and then without re-inking, stamped a few more times so it looks like the feather was floating down... you know, a stray plume came loose from one of those floozy video girls costumes... hee hee.  I stamped another feather onto a separate sheet of white cardstock, and colored & cut it out.

I also added a bit of shimmer to the bottom:

I adhered a strip of double-sided tape, and dumped glitter on top.    Instant bling.

I'm entering my card into this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge: using pastels with black.

Thanks for peeking!


  1. okay, that is pretty funny and got me laughing out loud.

  2. Very cute. And, you are amazing--you can always find a way to mask!

  3. This is so much fun!!! I love how you did the feathers and the great YO in the sentiment!

    And yes, I remember that Nelly song too. :-)

  4. Cute! I love the bit of sparkle :) Thanks for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  5. Ha! I love your inspiration and the card is so FUN!

  6. How fun and clever is this?! Genius! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays! We're so glad you did!

  7. We are sisters... well, except that you already have a few, and we live in different countries, and my babies are very pale... regardless, this is my brand of funny/witty. I mean girl, I SO want to make an "Apple Bottom" card now. LOVE IT!!!
