Runway Inspired Challenge #43

I'm playing along with a "new-to-me challenge" today. 
That is to say, I've seen it many times before, but this is my first time participating in 

Here's the inspiration photo for Challenge #43:


And here's what I was inspired to create:


I diecut my new Lil Inkers Chevron cover plate with some PTI stamper's select white card stock 
and layered it over some PTI true black card stock.
I diecut some PTI Summer Sunrise cardstock with my PTI notched banner die & trimmed it down.
I stamped a feather from my WMS Fine Feathers set onto some vellum and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I added some buttons with twine to finish it off.

Thanks for looking!
