I made this for today's sketch challenge. The peacock is from inka dinka do. It is stamped in taken with teal. I used positively pink chalk to shade him with and then traced around him some with a taken w/teal marker. The flowers are spellbinder roses. They are shaded using a versamark pen and positively pink chalk. The back panel is dry embossed and shaded w/positively pink chalk. By the way, both panels are spellbinders. The flower punch in the bg is Martha s
Stewart. The swirls came from cricut cutout --picturesqe. The dp is some that I got on sale at Michaels. The gems are from local craft store. They are actually made for fabric. Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous card, Geni. Your peacock is amazing as are your roses. I like how the punched band echoes the feeling of the "eyes" in a peacock's tail feathers. The bg DP looks like fine Italian hand-combed papers. The whole composition is extraordinary!

Pretty as a peacock! Gorgeous card Geni....I love the teal and pink together. The gems are wonderful accents to that long tail and your corners. The pink flowers are amazing...your shading really adds depth to those.
