Peacocks.....


Good morning everyone.  I'm here this morning to share a card that I am entering in the Challenge over at Joan's Gardens .  Each week Joan has a challenge with a nice gift for the winner and I always love to play long because her challenges keep me on my toes.  This week the challenge calls for the following:

Use Pink and White
Use an Embossing Folder
Use a Die for an Opening on the Front of the Card
Use Leaves as Accents.

Of course I used Spellbinders Circles dies and the embossing folder is from Sizzix and is called Peacocks.  I used a punch to cut out the pink flowers with pearls for the centers and the leaves are Marianne designs Creatables.  I also used pearls for the eyes on the peacocks.  I used chalk to add a little color to the birds.  I hope you can see it, it doesn't show very well. 

Well that is it for me this morning.  I hope your Monday is a good one!
