Feather Thanks

I just got this paper pad and the challenge for myself was to find a way to use this strongly patterned paper with swans, which is quite a way from my usual dots-checks-stripes... and not my usual colours either (I don't like any sort of pink at all).

Feather die: Hot Off The Press
Papers: Rosies
Stash: ribbon, sequins, card
