This week is our Tickle a Teapotter week, Whoohoo!! And since it's Halloween week, we are supposed to make a card as someone/thing we'd like to be. Mine is the Proud and Handsome Peacock.
I love purple and teal, add in the copper and you have something that says look at me, just like the male Peacock when he's struttin' his stuff.
I actually did dress as a peacock one Halloween. I had this beautiful fan of peacock feathers that was my tail. Picture this, in a tight teal one piece body suit. I was skinny way back then! hahaha Course that body suit held everything in place...
So, this card will be going off to Tickle a fellow Teapotter.

Beautiful rich colors for that fancy design. dad is a casual photographer and was always trying to get a great picture of a peacock with its tail open, as I agree as to how pretty they are. TFS

GORGEOUS!, Jennifer. Your colors are rich and exotic like a peacock. (Better a peacock rather than a peahen...they are pretty drab.) Love how you use copper......it's like a forgotten metallic, but has such a warm, rosy glow to it. Beautiful die cuts and a touch of sparkle to complete your lovely card.

I tried to figure out the story behind each card before I read the description. I can say that you totally stumped me with this one. I LOVE all of the jewel tone colors you've used. Great card......going to my favs.
