Friend to Friend Peacock Card


Good afternoon! This morning I woke up unusually early and I headed straight for my craft room. I found a color challenge at Craftin Desert Diva's that practically screamed at me to use The World Treasures Peacock stamp. Can you believe I've had this stamp for a couple of months and this was the first time I've used it? It really made a beautiful heat embossed image. I was brave and carefully mixed three colors of embossing powder. Then I picked papers to tie the colors together. The design comes from the sketch at Try Stampin' On Tuesday and the embossing works perfectly for the LEJ Designs Emboss It challenge . This Friend to Friend Peacock Card is also entered into the Addicted to Stamps and More Anything Goes challenge. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day!
