Proud as a Peacock


Last night I had a chance to play along with two challenges that I combined into one card.  I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #89, and I used the colours from the ColourQ #192.  I finished it just a little too late, and the lighting was poor.  So I opted to hold off until this morning to post in hopes of getting a decent (a relative term!) photograph of the card.

Here are the sketch and the colours:

And here's the card:

For the sketch, I rotated it counter-clockwise and decided to replace the banners with peacock feathers.  Pretty much everything on the card is Paper Smooches, with the exception of the little itty bitty heart, which is from Lawn Fawn. 

This is a card for my stash.  Mostly when I create a card, I am inspired (along with the challenges!) by the person I am making it for.  But in this case, I was inspired by the idea of using the peacock feathers with a "proud" as a peacock sentiment, and just ran with it.  So many people in my life make me proud everyday though, so I'm sure this one won't last too long in the stash!

Hope you have a good day!
I feel like another challenge might be in the "cards" for me again today!!!
Hopefully see you again tomorrow :)
