Been very brave today and got the feather box out, I'm not great with feathers as it reminds me of plucking chickens as a kid which was the most hated chore on the croft. Ok I know our chickens weren't purple but even those give me a bit of a shudder. However I felt that feathers was the stuff to use on this card and so I just had to focus on the 'champagne' colour. It has been a funny week for my cardmaking as Monday and Tuesday I was doing some  hand cut decoupage from the "Big One" cd, and as my hands aren't brilliant it was very hard work.All 3 cards are for family so they won't appear on here.
So as a treat today I am playing with my PBs and they always bring a smile.I added a sentiment from Whimsy which I thought very useful with my selection of chicken stamps.
Image - Surprise! and Cluck Cluck Cluck! stamps from Penny Black
 coloured with letraset pens.
Paper and card - card blank is an 8x8
and backing paper is from Prima Almanac 6x6 Paper Pack,

Dies used - Spellbinders ovals and square, 
and Go Kreate Ornament Frilly#2,
twine and feathers from stash.

Challenge covered :- Penny Black Saturday Challenge
