I decided to play along at the "Inspired by the LIttle Things" challenge - I love the photo - pity I missed the challenge cut off.... but I couldn't help but make a card! Aren't thos stained glass feathers just gorgeous? I pulled out my old Papertrey Ink Feather Finery and decided to go with a rainbow of colors for the feathers.... although I was really tempted to go with the turquoise and reds from the inspiration photo.
