Proud as a Peacock

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you've all had a great relaxing weekend, and are ready for another week of crafting?

Today I've got a card I've made for my friend to show you

The Peacock was stamped in black and coloured with my AP and SU markers, and then fussy cut and laid on some white card on 3D pads. I then embossed some blue, green, and red cards, and layered them side by side on a white base. The Peacock panel was layered on top, and a sentiment and some gems were added. The finishing touch was the single feather on 3D pads, and topped with a Mother of Pearl button and red ribbon bow.

I am entering these challenges :

The colours are from Color Throwdown,

I'm off to my Sisters tomorrow, as Nathan and Sophie want to do some crafting and make a card for Nana's birthday on the 24th of this month. We're hoping it will keep them busy enough to calm them down, as they are so excited about going on holiday on Saturday. They have already packed their cases with toys they want to take, and keep asking " how many sleeps till we go now Mummy?"

Here are my little darlings wearing their holiday Onesies.

Thanks for dropping by, and I hope you'll call again very soon
