Pretty peacock



Super quick post - somehow I always end up writing these late at night! I made this card for a co-worker's birthday and I hope she likes it.
The peacock stamp is from CTMH, and I got the idea of embossing and inking it from a fabulous CTMH consultant named Tresa Black. If you haven't visited her blog, go now, cause she does some amazing stuff! Mine is no where near as good as hers, but itstill turned out really pretty.
Challenges:
Colours - Curtain Call
Use ribbon - Stampin Royalty
Embossing - Heart 2 Heart
Use Ink - Stamping with the Dragon
Celebrate - Wee memories
