Congratulations - Freshly Made Sketches #417

It's is important that accomplishments be recognized and rewarded so I like to l have some ready made cards on hand to reflect that.

This card was made using the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches #417

Whenever we are proud of someone we usually say we are as "proud as a peacock", so I turned to the Royal Peacock stamp set with its coordinating dies. This set, from the Annual Catalogue, has some wonderful brightly coloured foil and Specialty DSP as part of the suite.

The card base is Thick Whisper White card stock layered with Old Olive Foil Specialty DSP

Three feathers were die cut using the feather die and one each of the three foil colours - Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive, and Pretty Peacock.  They were clustered together and tied with a  3/8" Old Olive/Peacock Reverse ribbon before being adhered to a piece of Whisper White card stock with glue dots.  This was matted with some Proud Peacock foil before being added to the far right edge of the card front.

The sentiment, stamped with Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White, is matted with Blueberry Bushel foil and adhered to the middle of the card straddling the art piece using dimensionals.

Nobel Peacock rhinestones, rhinestones that are in the same colours as the foil and DSP,  are added to the sentiment piece and to the upper and lower art piece.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Peaceful Moments, Noble Peacock
Inks:  Pretty Peacock
Papers:  Thick Whisper white, Noble Peacock Specialty DSP, Noble Peacock Foil, Whisper White
Accessories:  Noble Peacock Dies, 3/8" Old Olive/Peacock Reversible Ribbon, Noble Peacok rhinestones, glue dots, dimensionals
