I had tremendous fun making this and it's certainly in my top favourites of the cards I have made so far. It's for Lynn's DTGD challenge, and also for Stacy's.
I used mixed media paper because I wasn't sure how wet this was going to get - in the end I pretty much only used dry media. First up, I stamped the peacock feather and masked it. Next I sponged the diamonds using a TCW stencil. I added the sentiment, and then embossed it with the feather ef. Next I embossed all round the edges with white EP. Sponged some colour in using Tumbled Glass and Squeezed Lemonade. I coloured the feather with distress inks in the centre, then a metallic pencil for the copper, then H2)s, and then Stickles. Mercury Glass is my new favourite Stickles :D.
I added black Stickles round the edges, some fibres and cordings tied in a bow, some Enamel Accent dots on the embossing, and finally some little arrows to stress the message.

This is beautiful! Not only are the colors and textures drool worthy, but the dimension and fibers only enhance the great way you used the arrows, which are perfect with your sentiment. I can see why this is one of your favorites...IT'S AMAZING!
