My eye had been caught by the pretty peacock in the World Treasures Set, but I didn't jump until they offered it as a single stamp! It is really a pretty image. I inked it with Marina Mist then used a marker to add Eggplant highlights and used my Indigo inkpad (gotta get that marker!) to add some depth to the body of the bird and along the edge feathers. I sponged the edges with Island Indigo and added a tiny framing of Eggplant. I stamped images from Artistic Etchings on my right hand panel on a piece of neutral dp. The Indigo panel is embossed in the houndstooth ef, the Eggplant in chevron and the base of Marina Mist in the Elegant Lines. I added a bow of Rich Razzleberry Taffeta with an Antique Brad. No sentiment yet as I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this on.

This is stunning Gail! I love the image but the way you added little highlights and extra ink really make it a standout! I love the bg color and that bow with the antique brad make for one GORGEOUS card!
I simply love peacocks and the color combo is perfect. Fantastic card.
