I made several sets of card and pen sets for a Youth Retreat at which I am teaching 6th grade girls. The pen is for them to use at the retreat and I will write in card and give it to them at the end of the weekend. The funky feather pens are from the Target $1 Spot - four pens of four different colors in a package. The pens determined my color schemes.
The poly shrink charm is sanded, stamped with StazOn ink, and colored with SU! pastels prior to shrinking (this idea is from JulieHRR!). Corners were rounded and hole was punched with 1/8 inch circle. The feather part of the pen is adheared to the pen on two sides, creating a loop of feathers, so the charm is just tied on to that with cord.
I was trying very hard not to make this card look too Halloween-y, hence the Pink Passion accents.
