Now check this out!  So feathers are like snowflakes, right?  No two the same:)  So with that in mind, I made this card with the new Feathers 2 dies.  This set has 4 different feathers in various sizes.  The scale of these feathers are not too big and not too little.  I used them to create a cascading design and then made one feather a shaker!  (shocker, I know, lol)  


I filled my feather shaker with sequins, stars, small hexagon glitter, and large hexagon glitter.  Mixing up the fillers tends to make them more sticky and they don't all fall to the bottom.  I love the colorful mix!


Now it's time for you to hop on over to the next stop on the hop, my amazingly talented friend, Jocelyn Olson!   

Mahalo,
