New Digistamps4Joy releases - 18 Nov. 2012 (2)

Here is the second card I made with one of the new Digistamps4Joy releases this Sunday.

This is one of those CAS (clean and simple) cards I'm not very good at making, as I always tend to add, add, and add more embellishments!! But with this particular image (Footprints in the sand) that I drew and which comes in a set of 4 different footprints (bird, horse, cat, human), I thought it would be best just to make it look as if a bird had walked past. I copied the same image 6 times, then rotated each one slightly to create the larger track. The small track was made with the same image, reduced in size, and again slightly rotated. Each footprint was coloured with my SN pens, and the edge of the sand-coloured paper was chalked with a dark brown. This simple arrangement was pasted onto an embossed white background, and then onto a darker coloured cardstock. I think that the sentiment ("Don't ask God to guide your footsteps if you are not willing to move your feet") is so apt, and created it on the 'puter.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Lady Annes - anything-goes
Totally Gorjuss - plain-and-simple
Splendiferous Creations- birds-of-feather
