Had a little crafing time and a little bit of insperation so I thought I join the Color Create Challange. This week the colors is red and green, the optional is wings. So I decided to make a birthday card to my father who loves birds. I have combined this challange with Wendys sketch challange at the crafter companion forum, as I haven't done any one of them jet I started in the begging at week 1. You can also find her sketches at her blog, Wendy`s crafting times.

I'm the Empress :)

You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.
