Sometimes it is just so hard to put a card together.  You have an idea of topic and some papers to use.  Then what?  I really had this problem with these last two Peacock cards.  Here is what I finally came up with:

Lavender background paper embossed Mini Peacock Feathers (the crafters workshop). 2-layered pink Peacock (sizzix) pop dots on basic black paper; Blue, Green & Gold glitter glue on ocelli.  Blue glitter ribbon tape, Flowers (petaloo), pink & purple gemstones (hero arts) and blue, gold & green crystals (elements) complete the card.

I am trying to keep these cards simple, yet attractive.  Sometimes, this is really hard to do, especially with this next one:

Peacock Frame (cheery lyn designs) in metallic dark gray paper, on White Wash matt and Black Tie base paper.  Dark red coral ribbon.  The papers give a little bling, deserving of Peafowl, but the card is still basic and simple.
