Thanks a Million!

Welcome!

An Attitude of Gratitude is the theme of the challenge at Digistamps4Joy South Africa.

I've used the Peacock , the first freebie of the relaunched company to create my card. My pencils did the colouring and I used some texture boards to create a natural foregound and background on the picture.

The background of the card was created by stamping 2nd & 3rd impressions in 3 colours and in a radiating pattern. The sentiment was then stamped in a darker blue directly on the card.

Blue and gold papers were used for matting and some gold thread adds a touch of bling.

Here is my card:

 
The peacock a little closer:


I hope you like my card!
