Pretty Peacock (ITDK image)

Hello, everyone!  I just noticed I have 3 lovely new followers - I would like to extend a warm welcome to Kelly Smith, Robin, and jade4555 - so nice to have you here!  Kelly and Jade, I would be happy if you could leave a comment with your blog address so I can link to your blogs here.

Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for Brian's mom, who turned 82 on March 10. Happy Birthday, Kay!  I fell in love with the March Digi of the Month at Imagine That...digis by Kris called Pretty Peacocks. I got this set for free because I played in the progressive challenge last month. This month, you're in luck because Kris is offering the precoloured images for free so everyone can join!  How cool is that! Still plenty of time to join, so go check it out!


Well I adore these colours so I used the precoloured image and one of the sentiments that came with this set.  I embossed a white panel with Cuttlebug peacock from the Animal Prints set and added sparkly webbing, ribbon, bow, and tiny heart charm that says "made with love."

I would like to support these fun challenges:
