Teachers Pet!

Yaaaaay! I've just seen that my Fairy card was Top 3 at Make My Monday, and my Honey Bloom card was picked as a Mashup Glamette at Friday Mashup, so "Thank You" to their lovely DT's.

Today is my nephew, Nathan's last day at school before the long summer break starts, and he's off to the disco after school with this card for his teacher. I hope she likes it?

The Peacock was stamped in Archival ink and coloured with my AP and markers. It was then cut with the label die and the tail fussy cut to hang from the frame. Some coloured banners were made to lie flat on the base, with the Peacock frame raised on 3D pads. The finishing touches were the sentiment (also on 3D pads) and the gems.

I will also be entering these challenges :

The sketch comes from Retro Sketches,

the colours from ColourQ,

Make My Monday have the theme


and lastly, Friday Mashup who want  to see BACKGROUND STAMP or/and SOMETHING 3D ON IT 

Supplies :
Card - Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Bermuda Bay, and white base FMS
Stamps - Perfect Peacock and Simply Sketched
