Layered feather fantasy echinacea

The Moxie Fab World
Fascination with Feathers challenge...have you participated in this one?
I couldn't pass this one up.  I had a great time making this fantasy echinacea flower in shades of blue and green feathers and added a smaller ring of yellow feathers to mimic what I think a feather echinacea flower would look like.  The flower base is a stamped image from a Magenta stamp that I have.  I cut out a portion of it, coloured the leaves with a Copic marker and added some stitching down the centers of the leaves.  I added a fun aqua center that I think is perfect for this whimsical flower!   I placed the decorated flower onto a cut up doily with some green stitching around the center of it and wrapped a fun polka dotted ribbon with the same greens and blues in the feathers.  The stickers are from Cosmo Cricket and the sweet label die is a Memory Box.
Do you have plans for this week-end?  I hope to have some time to create some more cards for the other challenges going on in the Moxie Fab World, and, I hope to get into the garden too.  We are supposed to have such great weather here in Austin.  Until next time,
thanks for taking a peek today!
