Unity Challenge Grey and Feathers

Good Morning Ladies,
It is suppose to be a really warm one today. I am hoping to get out in it with the dogs.
The card for today is Unity Challenge Grey and Feathers
 I decide to go with grey and feathers. The feather background paper is from my stash. My choices for Unity images is Indie Girl and Trio of Beauty. They were stamped on grey card stock. Indie girl was cut with a create and craft die. The feathers were hand cut. A feather die was used to create a feather to stamp the sentiment on. The feathers were raised with pop tape.
A view to show the pop.
