Feather Flowers

***This is my second post today.  Please scroll down or click here to see the Best RAK Ever!**




Hi again.  Popping in with an entry for the latest Paper Smooches Sparks challenge and the Paper Smooches Design Team Call.  It also qualifies for the CAS-ual Fridays Opposites Attract challenge to use opposing colours on the colour wheel.  I was inspired by the colours from this fabulous quote (I'm right there with you, Dorothy!) and I used one of the feathers from My Peeps to create the flower petals.  The sentiment uses a combination of words from Word Up and Sentiment Sampler.  Off to walk the hounds.  Have a good evening all!  

Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Rustic Cream) PTI
Stamps:  (Feather from My Peeps, Mom from Word Up, You're Special from Sentiment Sampler) Paper Smooches
Inks: (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko,  (Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo) Stampin' Up
Embossing Powder:  (Clear) Ranger
Copics:  YR07, BG05, BG09
