Beautiful....

I played along again in the Color Cue (7) Challenge, whichis to use Cream/White, Aqua, Gold and Red. I sure did enjoy making this card! I pulled out one of the latest releases from Wplus9 called Magical Moments and decided to use this gorgeous peacock and emboss her in gold. To accent her pretty feathers and body I used a white gel pen to color in parts and outline others to make her pop a bit more. I used the small background building block, to stamp my cream panel in red and then trimmed out the gorgeous flower and leaves image for a pretty accent to my bow. This is definetly not a color combo I would naturally reach for, but one I really do love together, thanks for spending some time with me!

Woah. Stunning! I think you're one of the only people in the challenge to truly use gold, too, as opposed to yellow. Beautiful job.
