Proud as a Peacock.......

When I saw this peacock on the Art Nouveau cartridge I just knew that it would be gorgeous when cut and assembled- and I wasn't wrong! It's beautiful, especially when cut in shimmer cardstock as this was. I chose two shades of aqua and a deep peacock (!!) blue for the body and tail, and cream and brown for the wing under-feathers. The 'eyes' of the tail feathers and the head crest were blinged up with some Stickles and a black gem added for the bird's eye. The completed Peacock was adhered to an embossed oval, which in turn was adhered to a large tag. The card base is an A5 tent fold, and the papers are from the First Edition New Leaf pad. The pink patterned paper was edged with an EK Success punch.I added some narrow satin ribbon, a bow, some WOC cherry blossom blooms and a smattering of pearls.The sentiment was cut from more shimmer cardstock and adhered with foam pads.
