It's MY TURN to HOST at Just us Girls

Welcome to my FIRST posting as part of the

I chose for you a COLOUR CHALLENGE.

I loved these colours and thought it perfect
for the card I made for your Inspiration below.
I had to make this 'SPECIAL'
because the beautiful peacock die was given to me
by my best friend for my birthday so I will be sending
it on to her as a 'THANK YOU'
Now where do I start?
The peacock is cut from the Peacock Tattered Lace Die.
I then traced the cut out piece to
use as my backing. I then heat embossed it randomly
with Zing Aqua and Purple embossing powder
which gave it a lovely sheen
Sponged Tim Holts Peacock Feathers
and Seedless Preserves on the feathers.
Designer Paper is from Sugar & Spice Spring Garden collection.
How lucky was I that it included peacock feather paper?
I spritzed the mat behind the popped peacock
with a Tom Bow marker
The sentiment is from Gina K - Assorted Greetings
Added a Kaisercraft Sea Breeze Sparklet
 to the flower and leaves
which are from Marianne Designs & MS punch
I think that's about it. Finally finished this card after having
several peacock cut outs in various papers/colours for some time
just waiting for me to play with them.
Really happy with how it turned out and I know
my crafty friend will  be too.
I am really looking forward to seeing how my colours
inspired you by entering in our
Colour Challenge over at

and the other Designer's made also.
