Autumn Peacocks

Happy Monday Crafters. Today I have made these cards. I started with the blue tailed Peacock, but wasn't happy with it for the challenges I had in mind, so I made the green tailed version with a metal feather. Then I didn't want to waste the first bird, so I finished it off decoupaging the Peacock, and now I'm not sure which I like the best. Which do you prefer?

These are the challenges that I'm entering the top card in :

The sketch comes from Stampin' Royalty,

 Make My Monday whose colour theme is 

Male Room want a male card with    METAL,

and lastly, Paper Players 

Supplies :
Card - Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, Raspberry Ripple, Bermuda Bay, and base FMS
Stamps - Perfect Peacock, Hardwood, Simply Sketched, and Verve
Inks - Black Archival, Bermuda Bay, Tangelo Twist, Mossy Meadow, Raspberry Ripple, Crumb Cake, and Hello Honey
Tools - Big Shot, Framelits Labels, and Stamp-a-ma-jig
Extras - 3D Pads and metal Feather skeleton

I'm off to see Sophie and Nathan tomorrow, and I'll see how much Buttercup has grown. Then I'm in hospital again on Wednesday, so I may not be crafting till the weekend. Have a good week whatever you are doing, and thanks for dropping by.
