The Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge uses this photo of a Mexican resort, where our "fearless Leader" Lori, is spending her Anniversary with her DH!!

The colors are just so earthy, bright, and gorgeous, aren't they?? I took these colors and a wonderful image (Southwestern is close to Mexican, right???) from Rubbernecker for my card today.

I made a layout based on the decorations of the clothing (blanket? serape?). I just love this Native American woman. I dressed her in bold colors of yellow, blue, and green. She has a copper bead on her neckpiece, and copper beads on her belt. Her hands are open in a wonderful gesture that I took to be PEACE. With a copper pen, I faux stitched and added a sentiment. The bottom border is from EKSuccess, called Zig-Zag.
I hope you like what I have done. Please join us. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please add DDIC to your keyword so we can find it. If you go to my sidebar, you can click on the DT names to see what each of them has done with this inspiration piece. Join us here again in two weeks.
