These first two cards I left plain and flat for easy mailing. After looking at them for a bit, I thought maybe they needed some bling.
So, there's my "bling-y" versions. Still very simple, but some sparkle was added. Then, a friend told me about a color challenge on the Authentique blog. All the paper on these cards is Authentique, so I decided to check it out. With a little modification, the same theme worked for their color challenge. Here's the colors of the challenge: slate blue, denim, and leather.
I'm guessing you've seen plenty of feathers, so on you go for more Friends With Flair inspiration.
