A Feathery Thank You

I needed to create some thank you cards for a couple guys so I found some time to create.  I decided to go with a neutral pallet and pulled a few of my retired items. I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.

I used the Rustic Home Fundamental for the paper on the right and the word paper if from retired Florence. The bronze glitter paper is retired as are the gems.  I found this ribbon in my stash.  The feathers are from Artisty.

Happy Crafting!

I used #M3CEA5 Circle stars and using the slice and weld tools combined it with #M42EB0 Rectangle frame.
