Shoot For an Eagle

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is 'Personalize it!'.  This is one of my least favorite...'Personalize it'!  Ugh!  I don't like putting people's names on my cards for a couple of reasons...First, I never seem to get them in the mail if it is for someone I have to mail a card to.  Second, I like my cards to be 're-gift-able' meaning, I usually will write my message on a sticky note or piece of scrap paper and put it into the card itself so that the receiver of the card can give it to someone else...a card and a gift in one!
We are being sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy.  I used this fun pre-colored image called 'Champion Eagle'.  I created the sentiment using a quote from Peter Scott (my personalization) to go with the image.  I added some ribbon and DP and called it good enough.  I actually really like how clean but  nice this turned out!

Here is the sentiment for you to enjoy:

Do I detect Peach Parfait? I loved that color and still have it in my stash. Sweet card, Karen! It is my first introduction to pre-colored digital files. Interesting concept. My fave detail is your quote from Peter Scott! Thanks so much for including my color combination with the PPA in your cardmaking fun this week. Hope you will return to play with the PPA again!
