Breast cancer awareness -I'm here for you

Hi everyone!  Today is the 2nd day of the week full of cards that the The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is devoting to the issue of Breast Cancer Awareness. We’ve been inspired to create these cards in coordination with the Hope You Can Cling To event over at Splitcoaststampers. It’s an annual event SCS sponsors to raise awareness and to provide a variety of cards to MD Anderson Cancer Center, for their patients and families. The SCS event involves lots of challenges posted during the month of October with lots of prizes being offered. Be sure to check it out!
Here is my card:
 I love feathers, to me they're hopeful.  There is a lot of symbolism associated with feathers for many cultures, especially the Native Americans.  Feathers from different birds have different meanings from the Dove symbolizing love, Eagle feathers bringing strength, to the Raven bringing knowledge.
My youngest son and I love to collect them and whenever we go anywhere or take a walk, we are always on the lookout for feathers.  Finding a feather on the ground means you are on the right path.
So I thought my feather die cut was perfect for this card.  I used the negative outline of my die cut and let the strips of paper and sequins peek through.

Aren't these Feathers dies beautiful?
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!  Here is a close up picture.
