Pretty as a Peacock

I enjoyed playing with my new Peacock set yesterday so much so that I had a go with it again today.  I wanted another bright and cheery card.  I enjoy putting all the pieces of bling all over his tailfeathers.  I wanted a nice peacock colored ribbon for this card but didn't have what I was looking for.  Since I was headed out to the craft store anyway I looked there and found this stuff.  The scan completely dulled it out but trust me, it is a brilliant and sparkly blue and looks great with all the bling.

I know these fancy peacocks are dude peacocks because lady peacocks aren't that flashy, but to me this peacock looks a little girly.  It could just be that this dude peacock is comfortable with his feminine side and can wear pink.
I used my Spica glitter pen and crystal dimensional stuff instead of bling for this card.  I used used a piece of black patterned paper from the supercool black and white paper pad I picked up at the craft store.  I also got a pad of paper called Pretty as a Peacock.  You can bet I'll be digging into that soon.  Oh yeah, if you're part of that "Use It Up" crowd, just shush!  I promised to use up adhesives and stickers.  I just can't sign on for a paper moratorium.

Who said real men can't wear pink? Both are fabulous cards hun, and I love the pink twist. Hugs Sxx

Lovely cards Judy! Thanks for all your wonderful comments on I SPI. I'm having great fun with the marathon. I'll be breaking for a few days, filling a couple of orders, but the marathon will continue...
