Feathers - Color and Background Challenge

Hello! I'm coming in at the last minute again - because I once again forgot that the color challenge for the Playdate Cafe ends today! Someday I will be more on top of it and keep better track of it! Anyway - I also made this for the Make Your Own Background Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Here is my card:
Here is the color inspiration:

For some reason, looking at these colors made me think of feathers - and I had been wanting to play with my feather stamps from my November Unity KOTM. I also used a lacy background from the December KOTM on my background. 
I used a few different PTI ink colors, randomly stamped the feathers in two colors, and then stamped the lace background over the top. 
I added a lacy circle cut with a Spellbinder's Die, then layered over some feathers that I cut with my Silhouette Cameo with a file from the Silhouette online store. I used coordinating glitter paper for the feathers!
I hand trimmed a banner, and stamped a sentiment from the October KOTM, using the same three colors of PTI ink so that it blended in. I attached the feathers with foam adhesive, then used foam adhesive to attach the sentiment banner of over the top.
Used some jute twine to tie a bow around the bottom of the feathers, and added a little random bling. 
Finished off by matting it in kraft cardstock before attaching it to a white cardbase.
Ahhh...I love the feather trend! So pretty and fun! What about you - is that one that you are enjoying?
