Thank You: The Peacock Challenge Card

Thank You Peacock Card

Several weeks ago, my friend Anna sent me an envie full of die cuts. I love peacocks, so my eye was immediately drawn to this beautiful image with its paisley wing and its intricate feathers! I started to put together a kit of coordinating items to play with on a day when my desire to create was running high, but my mojo was running a little low. Today, I pulled out that kit and decided to make a Thank You card, using some current challenges for inspiration!

These are the challenges I used as inspiration for this card:

The smArt-Word Challenge – Bird’s The Word
A Pocket Full Of Posies – Challenge #5 – Winged Things
Charisma Cardz – Challenge #33 – Die Cuts
Heart 2 Heart Challenges – Stitching Up Some Artwork
Aud Sentiments – Challenge #9 – Anything Goes

For the Heart 2 Heart Challenge, I added a touch of color and stitching via the lace to the edge of the card. I also used CTMH’s D1247 From Me To You stamp set and CTMH Olive Dye Ink to add the sentiments Thank You to the exterior and For Your Friendship to the interior of the card.

For the Pocket Full of Posies Challenge, I included yellow flowers with CTMH Bigger Brads since they require you to combine flowers with their current theme.

The card also features dewdrops and patterned paper from Stampin Up.

Now, I just learned that starting in August, Aud Sentiments is now sponsoring monthly blog candy – and their first sponsor is Denami Design Rubber Stamps!  Denami is offering a generous $30 gift certificate to spend in their online store to the lucky winner – how fabulous is that? Thanks, Audrey, for letting me know about the contest – I completely missed that the first time round!
