PPA Challenge #12 (Sketch)

This is the sketch that was designed by the Featured Sketch Artist, Margaret Moody for this weeks challenge. She has created a beautiful card for this weeks challenge also. Click on the PPA sign on the left to see her card and the other PPA designers. Try the challenge it's a lot of fun to see all the different designs and ideas.

I needed a thank you card this week and I just love the stamps from the Ronald McDonald set called "Very Thankful". For every stamp set sold Stampin' Up! donates $2.00 to the Ronald McDonald House Charity.

I used the Peacock with her beautiful plumes and jeweled crown.

I know everyone is fired up about the Holidays and making cards for them but I wanted something a little different. I found a scrap of the Bermuda Bay designer paper on my counter top and looked it up in the book to find out it was called "Thoroughly Modern" designer paper. I haven't used this color a lot but I really like it. Well I'm not an organized person and I knew I had more of this paper so I had to look for the folder it's in. Like always it wasn't where it's supposed to be. Well I found it and I fell in love with it all over again.
I wanted you to see the Peacock up close so I took a second picture, I hope it works so you can see the detail. It's fun to play at PPA!
