Live a happy life


Hi everyone, hope you've had a great week. Mine has been a bit mixed but amongst the good things that have happened Kathy from Daring Cardmakers asked me to stay on as Guest Designer for another month. I was delighted to be asked and just loved the inspiration picture for this week's dare. You can take a look and join in here.

Here's my card:


As you can see I was heavily inspired by the peacock feathers- I used an actual feather, peacock feather paper (from Hunkydory), Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and chose Tim Holtz words inspired by two of the traditional meanings of peacock feathers (kindness and gratitude).

I also gained inspiration from the pattern on the socks and from the bow on the cat.

Another busy few days ahead for me with a craft demo on Sunday and some DT work planned. Hope you all have a great weekend xxx

I'd like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Daisy Chain Challenge Anything Goes

Lovely to have you with us a bit longer, Cathy! I played around with an actual peacock feather as well but gave up in the end - yours came out beautifully and I love that you used the textured diamond pattern from the socks as well!
