USING PEEL-OFF's IN A NEW WAY

I received some rather uninteresting (because of the lack of detail) peel-off's for Christmas, and this is how I decided to amp them up a bit:


I added a feather, some sequins, and I think the paper pricking brings the peel-off to a whole new level - I love the look!
I also used the following from my hoarded stash:

cream coloured CS base card
apricot coloured CS mat
to different DP's inked
twine
satin ribbon bow
sewn on sequins and beads
peel of sentiment

The technique needs a little refinement, so I consider this a 'prototype' of sorts... but looking to take this a little further ...
