Hoping everyone is safe from tonight's storms. Sounds like it could be a little touchy around here.
Now for Today's Card...
Today's Midweek Throwdown challenge is to make a card featuring a winged creature. Winged creature challenges usually bring out my butterfly punches. But, I wanted to make something a little more masculine. So, I decided to go with an embossed image of a little bird waiting for the return of his/her mate.

I've had this folder for a couple of years, but just wasn't sure how to bring a little pizzazz to such a simple image. Hope I've accomplished that with the sanded embossing and mixture of textures.
Now what to do for Paula's Design Bootcamp challenge to make a card that features repetition... and variation... and a strong focal point. :)
Looking forward to tomorrow night's Stampin' Up! technique class.
Thanks for stopping, happy scrappin', and stay safe.
