Dottie's World Challenge - Feathers

June wants us to use feathers for this week's DW challenge. Well, I searched through my craft room and couldn't find a single blummin feather so I settled for two strips of Maribu, I think it still counts (fingers crossed!)

I wanted to make a thank you card for my fabulous cousin Gill who has made me a fantastic hand quilted bag - she's so clever!

She lives down in Bristol so I decided to make my card to fit inside a tin that I had saved (like you do!) so that it survives the journey in the post.

The Pixie is one of my drawings which are sold as downloads at Charmed Cards and Crafts. The sentiment was cut out on my Silhouette, the papers are Basic Grey (I think lol) and those cute flowers were purchased at The Works book shop.

Here's the tin, I kept t fairly simple but I like it.

Here's the arty shot ;0)

Thank you for looking, enjoy your week.
