  1. Love that silhouette image against the mixed coloured background - super work :)

  2. When we first moved to Az the Kokopelli was quite popular and my one of my boys used for wall decoration. Love the silhouette against the stripes and colors are perfect. Thanks for sharing your pretty card with us at Color Dare.

  3. What a fun card! I love the way you used the stripes of paper for the color and die cut them in the circle. Thanks for joining us at 613 Avenue Create. We hope we see you on the front porch again soon!

    Have a good day.

  4. Well, you've surprised me in a good way, Katrina!!! :) [I did my research = Kokopelli = Kokopelli is a kachina, or spirit, found in the mythology of the Hopi, Zuni, and other Pueblo Indians of the American Southwest.] Thank you for expanding my mythology knowledge memory bank and I'll need to add it to our list! Cool!! Well made with the perfect color palette to give it the US Southwest look! Thanks for sharing at Heart's Quest Fantasy!!! == Becca
