The CD Sunday Challenge - Fine Plumage



 Hi,
I am a bit late with this card,  but its been a bad week with pain and not being very well,  even now my hubby is telling me I should be resting, but I wanted to get this card on before it was too late.   Would you believe I made it last sunday and here am I putting it on today, roll on the op.
This weeks challenge is Fine Plumage,  well I know its birds but I wanted to think outside the box,  and this is what I came up with,  A Plume of Feathers as a Fan.  This card seems to have it all,  the backing paper is from the Roses CD by Robert Adams.  The gold peel off was put onto parchment paper and embossed and coloured,  the pink and white feathers put behind it and then placed onto the card, with a gold hand holding it.  Glitter peel off edging,   and pink and white gems in opposite corners.   I did put a white ribbon on the card, but I think it might be better with a pink one. What do you think?
I love to visit all the other blogs in the challenge but so far I have not got to any of them, so if I don't get to visit your blog please accept my apologies   
I hope you have a lovely weekend and the rain does not stop you doing what you want to do.   Until we meet again take care
                               Hugs
                           Margaret

  6. Oh this is lovely Margaret. Great idea to make a fan out of feathers. Everything matches so beautifully. Love how you have used the peel off. I have a couple of sheets of the fan peel offs, never used! Sorry to hear you have not been well. Hope you get better soon. Your husband is right, rest! Michelle x

  13. I love the way you have made the fan Margaret and when I picked the theme I hoped it would be general enough for different interpretations :-)so well done, I hadn't thought of a fan but it is perfect.
