Peacock Card

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful Wednesday! We have been enjoying some absolutely fab whether here in our little corner of the world. Anyway.... I'm happy with how today's card turned out, but it really doesn't photograph well for some reason. The colors are much brighter in person & you can see that she has Stickles on the ends of each feather. Oh well, I wanted to share it with you anyway, so you'll just have to trust me that it's much prettier in person....
