Play Date Cafe Challenge #30

It's time for another Play Date Cafe Challenge!  The colors were selected this week by Mona and they are so soft and very pretty!  Here is the inspiration photo:

I played around quite a bit and ended up with using this lovely peacock from Hero Arts.
 Love the fancy tail on the bird! The peacock is stamped using versamark and  is embossed using Ranger Lettuce embossing powder. The background is created using Alcohol Inks Sunshine Yellow and Lettuce.

The accents on the peacock is pink liquid pearls.

The gorgeous paper on on the background is Webster's Pages 6 x 6 pack.

The challenge this week is hosted by me. :)
Our wonderful guest designer is Maile Belles, and her blog is  Simply Stamped by Maile Belles
The rest of the design team has created wonderful projects for the challenge. Go check them out!


Looking forward to everyone's entries.  Thanks for stopping by!
