Feather Weather and Upcycled Packaging

     OOoooo, feathers! I hope this trend never goes away. As soon as I saw the latest Tuesday Trigger inspiration, I knew I had to use my marabou feathers on a card in some way.
     Here's the trigger:
    Gorgeous, no?
    Here's my take on the challenge and a note about upcycled packaging.
     First, I made the card base with white cardstock embossing it with Cuttlebug's Birds and Swirls folder. Then, I die cut the bird using Spellbinders' Bird Sanctuary dies.  
     I bought a new laptop a while back, and when I pulled the protective cover off the keyboard, I knew I had to upcycle the cover in some way. I used it here as a stencil to make my own patterned paper. After daubing on some color,  I trimmed the panel and matted it with matching cardstock. The stencil covers half a sheet of cardstock so I have more panels to play with. Wooohooo!
