Au Naturale Guinea fowl

I have to admit that I do enjoy the cooler wet weather, after last week's sudden heatwave.
Today's post was triggered by There she goes clearstamp's challenge: Au Naurale and it has been a while since I joined the guys at 365 Cards. A bit of change on my latest projects in terms of colour. But I digged around in my stash for the following: Kraftpaper for the base card, twine ribbon, that I have cut in 2 for the border, outer ovale is cut from dung paper made from rhino dung, inner ovale from cream cardstock, the stamp is probably one of my very first wooden stamps from many moons ago, stamped with brown ink and coloured with aquarelles, the feathers is guinea fowl feathers and then I came upon the sunflowerseeds. Thought it could do the thing. The sentiment was handwritten, just to keep it really natural.
