Today's Daring CardMakers 'something extra' challenge is.....

"You Big Softie" We want you to use something soft on your card feathers, velvet paper, fluffy fibresall that soft, strokable stuff counts for this one and that's it, easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!

I like using feathers on cards and I made a similar card before which my friend 'nicked' off with, she liked it so much. I used my PI fan stamp, embossed with Blonde Moments Suet Pudding then scored and folded the red fan and snipped the lilac one to lift alternate sections. I then attached the feathers, adding gems at the bottom. The backing paper is BM too and the stamped scrolls are Heidi Grace stamps. I inked the edges of the card with chalk ink and voila!
