Christmas Thanks with a blue feather

What fun it has been to use these gift wrap backgrounds from one of my Christmas gifts!! This piece was a bit short so I cut it into three pieces, stamped them with hand made foam stamps (circle and dot) and a swirl in blue to coordinate with my card front.  I glued the three pieces to my card front starting with the top and the bottom and centering the other one in between.  I added black cardstock strips in between for a nice dramatic effect.  The feather is a foam sticker which I embellished with permanent markers in several colours of blue and black on the outside edges.  I cut a rectangle of blue cardstock and adhered my sticker to it.  It still needed a bit of something so I used blue ink and my stipple stamp to soften its look. Perfect! I adhered this element at a bit of a slant on my card front and added a layered punchie greeting.
