Amazing Peacock

Hello All,

For today I am throwing my hat into The Paper Players and CAS(E) this Sketch challenges. Here is my card for today, enjoy!
  
Peacocks are my absolute favorite creature. Their color in particular always has inspired me. The Paper Players gave me an excuse to pull out my peacock stamps, SU inks, and aqua pen then start creating this card with the help of CTS sketch to guide me.
The weathered wood background seems to be a perfect fit for this design. The color and texture fit the bill exactly! Plus the banner is acting as my 'other color' for The Paper Players. I got a wood texture paper pack at Michaels and it has proven to be a worthwhile investment. 
This sentiment is well...... Amazing! The movement of the script works well with the peacock.
I also adore the parquet wood border against the distressed wood background.
It is a fantastic juxtaposition. 

Challenges Entered:


Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.
