Brighten your world with the sparkling colors and mesmerizing motifs of Peacock Paisley, the exquisite spring release from Heartfelt Creations.  This lush collection sparkles with jewel tones of topaz, sapphire, amber, emerald and turquoise.  The artistic flair of exotic peacocks, intricate paisleys, frilled feathers and delightful daisies will captivate your imagination and energize your creativity.  Six sumptuous sets of intricately designed, deeply etched red rubber stamps are the perfect companions to a vibrant paper collection that is overflowing with card fronts, cut apart pages, vivid artwork, pre-designed layouts and beautifully layered backgrounds.  The Delightful Daisy Die cuts 7 perfect floral layers with one pass through your cutting system.  Whether you want to preserve life's most beautiful moments, create with mixed media techniques or design keepsake cards, you'll be proud as a peacock to present the sophisticated elegance of Peacock Paisley.

Now when I think of peacocks, I think of beautiful and gorgeous over the top birds!
The colors that these birds display are absolutely amazing!
I've tried to capture this in this weeks card...including the feeling of their large open show when they strut around with their plume feathers on display...you'll see what I'm talking about in just a moment!

I fancied to do some coloring with my Spectrum Noir blendable pencils on the image that I chose to work with.  I always think they lend themselves to a softer coloring than the markers.
Of course I also wanted to add some sparkle and shine to the creation to mimic the gorgeous shine a peacock has when the sunlight hits it's open feathers!  I've tried to accomplish that look with Stickles and sequins!
I found a sentiment that I thought fit the card just perfectly..."There's Only One You" ...it's a message that would be perfectly paired with a peacock image to send to that friend who is just all around fun, over the top and whose personality is larger than life!

Enough description!

Let's take a look at how this creation came out!


When I saw the half circle die in my stash, I knew that I need to use it as a card topper to give the card a certain presence.  I also thought it really resembled the look of the fan shape of the peacock's tail and that it would really make the flowers pop at the top of the card!

Here's a closer look at the grouping...


I just love all the shimmer and shine on this card!
I've included all the supplies and directions on how I've created this card for you at the end of this blog post should you be interested...
