Enjoy Life

Hi friends,
We made it! Some people prophesied about an apocalypse happening on Saturday. I thought that maybe it might be true since my crafty mojo was nowhere to be found. :(  I had ideas in my head, but I just couldn't get anything going. I woke up Sunday morning & we were all still here. That's a good thing, right??? So I headed back to my craft room & decided since this was the first day after the near apocalypse, I would honor it by using a stamp I've had for a long time & did not ink before. I also was going to create a CAS card with a color combo I would probably never have thought to use before. That's a crafting triple threat--->I meant business!!! ;) Hopefully, this will get my mojo back :)
Here's my card:
 I used a stamp called Peacock Feather by Stampendous. It's such a simple but beautiful stamp. I stamped it 3 times in Elegant Eggplant, Plum Pudding, & Lavender Moon. Then I wrapped some lavender floss around the card & punched the edge.

Here's a closer peek:
The sentiment reads "Delight in Life" very apropos, don't ya think :) I love how the middle of the feathers look like hearts, which is why I turned them downward. I hope that doesn't mean anything negative. :( When I was in college, my friend had a peacock as a pet & that thing was SOOOO noisy! It was a thing of beauty, but it was a loud bird! I asked him if I could have a few feathers, and he told me it was bad luck to have peacock feathers as decorations in the house. I don't know if it was true or he was just being stingy!

I used this week's color challenge at CR84FN: Light Plum, Plum, Kraft

Well, I hope you take time to enjoy where you are today :)
Gotta Go!
