DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY - "Use a Feather" Challenge

Time for another DS4J Challenge card from me ... and for this challenge you need to use a feather on your card - how easy!.. or so I thought! My first effort went into the bin ... this is my second, and a much better one.

Instead of the usual coloured image, I used a sentiment from the Digistamps 4 Joy store here, and this one is lovely ....

like you don't need the money
like you've never been hurt
like nobody's looking

and the meaning of that for me is to be PASSIONATE, I don't need be be the best at anything I do but I must do it with passion. I have no need to do anything with the sole purpose of becoming wealthy or famous, but I must be passionate!

There is not much to say about this card, it is what it is, a simple re-coloured sentiment printed onto a die cut card using a die from Country Crafts, some sewn on beads and sequins, a peacock feather and a satin and organza ribbon bow.
