It has taken me two weeks to get these 4 greeting cards finished -- some family members are in visiting for two weeks before school starts in the fall.

Today's set of cards are 4 Peafowl:

Peacock Tiles (E1674 by Impression Obsession) is colored with Copic markers and Gelly Roll glitter pens, edged with Vintage Photo distressed inked; adhered with pop dots.  Paper is Taj Mahal stack by DCWV.  Gold embossed Feather is from Fine Feathers set by Stampin' Up. Silver embossed Feather is from Peacock Feather set by HOTP (#1116); both are topped with 2 blue rhinestones.  Used Black Tinsel Twine by Tim Holtz for a finishing touch.

Green Peafowl is colored with Copic markers and Gelly Roll glitter pens; edged with Salty Ocean distressed ink.  This is the only Green Pavo rubber stamp I have; the only one I have ever seen.  I would love to get more.  Background papers are from The Old World Stack by DCWV.  I used 4 pieces of stock flowers to make two flowers adhered with two red Glitter Brads by We R Memory Keepers.  Sentiment is from Circle of Love rubber stamp set by Close to My Heart; adhered with pop dots.

Stylized Peacock from Circle of Love set by Close to My Heart (D1438) is colored with Copic markers and Gelly Roll glitter pens.  Background papers are from The Far East stack by DCWV.  Paper doily is brushed with Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade and Broken China distressed ink.  Green Sheer ribbon is from American Crafts.  Added 3 rhinestones from Me & My Big Ideas to finish the card.

Lastly, this lovely Peacock (BA04 from The Stencil Collection) is Pearlescent embossed (Dreamweaver).  Base papers are from Cherry Blossom papers (Graphic 45 Bird Song Collection).  The peacock feather is an applique from Simplicity.  Red, Green, Blue and Pink rhinestones from a'muse, and the stock pink to purple sheer ribbon completes this attractive card.

Hope you are enjoying your summer and creating some wonderful cards when the weather is too warm to be outdoors!
