Very Thankful Peacock

1:09 PM Edit This 15 Comments »
In case anyone was left wanting more from the Clean and Simple card, here's one I really like. The set is Very Thankful and can be found on the back cover of the catalog. It's this year's Ronald McDonald House set and $2 from every purchase of this set goes to them. I loved the peacock as soon as I saw it and knew I had to ink him up in blues and greens. I used Brilliant Blue, Glorious Green, and Tempting Turquoise inks and cardstock. He also has a little glitter on those feathers but it's hard to see here. I notched out the corners on the white cs and added silver brads and the eyelet border was punched around BBlue. Do you see the embossed background? It the new Finial Press - love it! I rounded the top corner and sponged around the edges. Organza ribbon finishes it. I'm almost thinking of sending it in to SU! for their WOW file - after I perfect a few details ; ). What do you think?

Stunning!!! I noticed the peacock stamp in the back of the catty (not too far from dashing Dasher!) and I love what you've done with it :)

We love it! My husband (Who isn't usually into crafts) saw the Dasher stamp and loves it but made the excuse of not knowing what to do with it. Now he can see some examples and he wants the stamp and more!
