Grateful Peacock

Hello again!  Today I wanted to show off a card I made for one of the DTGD challenges over at  I used 'Pretty as a Peacock' by my friend Asela for Gina K. Designs along with some colors that I think look terrific together:

The pretty peacock image panels & sentiments were heat embossed in black on Bermuda Bay cardstock along with Pacific Point, Lucky Limeade, and Eggplant Ency accents and lime colored rhinestones.  The peacock square was cut out and popped up, and that lime accent under the sentiment?  It was a strip of cardstock that I double punched on both sides with a fiskers border punch that didn't center in an asthetically pleasing way, so I snipped off a symmetrical piece and positioned it under the sentiment, I think it looks pretty there!  I think the peacock feather background paper was by Recollections...

Since a peacock is featured I am also entering it in 2 Cute Ink's Challenge #112 - to feature an animal.

I made this card for a dear friend who has been SUPER kind, patient and generous to and with me as I am attempting to learn how to crochet from videos on the internet.  I am extremely grateful and wanted her to know it.  I hope she won't mind that I shared it here with all of you as well (I am guessing not, she is pretty awesome!)

Have a great day!
