Good Inspiration for #40 at Feeling Sketchy

Hi there, today's card is again for Feeling Sketchy, I am really enjoying the card maps the girls come up with and because it is an Aussie blog challenge this one has fast become my favourite challenge to enter. I can't wait until the new DT members start inspiring us as well.

Here is the sketch for this week, although it is very much a scrapbook layout I found it very easy to adapt into a card. (I don't scrapbook!)

I have channeled Narelle Farugia's style that I am a big fan of and added lots of layers with a monochromatic colour scheme. The papers, cardstock, ink, ribbon, leaves and stamped quote are all from Stampin' Up! while the flowers and pearls are Prima, I think from my local scrapbook shop. After I put my elements all together it still needed something, I played around with more flowers but it just wasn't working, then I remembered the bag of feathers I purchased while I was n Canberra a few months ago and whaa la ...... perfect!

Here's my card I hope you like it;
