Feathers and Twine

I recently got the Platinum machine and a steel rule die for my birthday (wonderful hubby!) and yesterday afternoon I managed to squeeze out a few minutes to play.

I used 4 card stocks, Cocoa Powder, Oatmeal Cookie, Pumpkin Bread, and Journey Basics Neutrals (pattern papers).  I also used 3 different Silks, Dark Roast, Bronze, and Citrus Cooler.  I made a double bow from the Natural Twine and added the Star Button.  A final phrase from the Sentimental Prints set and voila!

I did sponge Cocoa Powder ink around the feathers and used the same to stamp the phrase.  Can you see the Pumpkin Bread piece?  I embossed it with the Beach Towel folder. 

This would be a great card for a gentleman friend who isn't feeling well, or maybe for his birthday!  What would you use it for?
