None of us is born thinking we are ordinary. Feeling special is an essential part of the human birthright. If you don’t think you are special, you won’t seek to contribute your gift to the world. -Rabbi Shmuley Boteach

Color affects us ...

Color affects us. Everyone should have a paintbox and a large box of crayons.
--- Dr. SunWolf, 2015 tweet, professorsunwolf.com ---

Good morning Everyone!
Today is the start of a new color challenge for The Outlawz Challenges.

Here is the Inspiration
This week our challenge is to use tral and two other colors.
I chose an olive green and a golden tan(?) color.

Our sponsor this month is Bugaboo Stamps and I am using this image "Life in Color"

I love peacocks ... I know their call can be rather disturbing but when I was growing up, my grandfather kept them on his ranch to serve as a natural alarm system. I can remember watching in awe when Mr. Male would fan out his gorgeous tail in an attempt to attract the fair ladies.
My grandmother would gather up his lost feathers and kept them in a vase in her living-room.
Ah - good memories!

This card is 5.50 x 5.50
