Peacock Remodel

Hello All,

Just a quick note to say thank you so much to the design team at (PIN)spirational for choosing my card for their Top 3!! I am so thankful and pleased you liked it..

For today I am sending my card to Color Throwdown.  What a fun and cheery color combination.  The cool colors work so well with the mustard yellow.

Sending this card to
Color Throwdown #ctd343

The minute I saw this challenge I knew what I was going do but naturally it didn't turn out that way.. What I ended up doing was disassembling a card I did awhile ago and reworked the entire card with these colors in mind. I think it ended up better then the original! At the end of this post I will show you both and you tell me what you think. Well enough chit-chat here is my design hope you like it!!

As you can probably surmise my computer decided to have a tantrum today and wasn't working for a few hours.. So I had to upload my images to Pinterest then attach the file to this blog.. The photo quality was terrible but that is all I had... Decided to give it one more whirl and here we are.. What a serious pain!! New computer coming soon...

So anyway this is my card for today. Like I mentioned earlier the peacock image was done quite a long time ago.. I kept the design essentially the same from the original but changed up the sentiment and the colors indicated by the challenge.
  1. I had the Lost Lagoon card made from a previous project to an A2 size.
  2. Punched a border on shimmery purple paper attached it to the card.
  3. Added yellow border to the left.
  4. The peacock panel was done using the opposite side of the border paper cut to size.
  5. Used previous ribbon from the last design attached it to the purple panel.
  6. Added a yellow banner then the peacock image.
  7. Color rhinestones to match the purple and added it to the peacock for some sparkle.
  8. Die cut the label and stamped sentiment attached to card.
That was it... If the computer cooperates I will post the original pic I did two years ago... Here we go.. If I do shut down thank you for visiting and we will see you soon and of course comments of all kinds are welcomed. 

I made this card about 2 years ago and just kept it.
I thought it would be perfect to rework it for the Color Throwdown Challenge.
Phew! I made it!! Have a great night everyone.. And for those in the U.S.A. I hope you had a very special Memorial Day. Take care all and see you soon (I hope)...

All the best,

Hello Shawn,
I regret that you have a problem with your computer, because you will have difficulty in publishing new posts. I always look forward on them eagerly, because I love your cards. They are always so beautiful and inspiring. This card also. I love the colors of the peacock, it is painted so beautifully.
And I would like to thank you for promoting my blog :-) I send greetings to the new fan (your husband). Thank you for everything, for your wise words (concerning the activities of my blog) and wait for quick new meeting.

Oh, I love both Shawna. The peacock image is gorgeous and the colors look wonderful. The border design is so pretty... and the shimmer paper is a nice touch. Thank you for playing along with us at The Color Throwdown.
