Pretty, Pretty Peacock

Good morning all! Once again the weekend has arrived and I am thrilled to relax a bit, and with every Saturday comes a Artful INKables post! For my card today I wanted to share with you the design I created for a card front swap that I am participating in while at a Shoebox swap today! In fact, most of you will be reading this while I am at the SBS! I decided to use the fabulous new Peacock set from Artful INKables called Paisleys & Peacocks as my main image, I just simply love this set!
I wanted to go with bright and fun colors in my Peacock so I used a light blue, a pale yellow, and a green for the outer part of the feathers. I used one of my new Nestabilities, Labels Eleven, for the main piece and then sponged the edges in a light blue. I got this wonderful ribbon that I think makes the whole look pop a bit more, and no card is complete with out some fun embellishments, so I used these great Prima flowers I picked up from my local Michael's. I had so much fun creating todays card, and I hope you love it as much as I do! Have a wonderful day all, see you all soon!
