Livin' La Vida....

Helllllloooooo there! I am so happy that you stopped in today, well any day you visit is wonderful, but I'm just thrilled to 'see you' here again. 
I have a fairly simple card today, but I think it depicts exactly what it's supposed to for our challenge going on over at
where the theme for this challenge is....
I really admire the uniqueness of these peacock feathers, titled Beautiful Blocks-Life In Color at Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  Background papers were picked to draw out the hues of the feathers and the bird paper compliments the theme as well.  The feathers were colored with copics, a simple ribbon and bow were added with a centerpiece flower.  For additional texture, I punched out eight squares and foam layered with papers that accented the feathers as well.  The sentiment was recreated on the PC and placed to the side for fairly CAS look.
That's it for this card, but there's even more amazing inspiration over at
The Squirrel & The Fox by the other fantastic DT ladies.
 A sincere thank you as well to our generous sponsor who is providing the winner's prize!
I hope you have an amazing day!
Think things with wings....

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I am certain that I've made the correct career choice in being a teacher... short term nursing is ok, but would not want to do this all the time!
