PCC #279 Inspiration Challenge with Stampin' Up! Beautiful Peacock

Hello and Happy Hump Day!  What a week it's been so far for me.. work week that is.  I've been working a lot of hours over the last month or so and this old gal is getting tired! lol   I've told myself that I'm retiring in 4 years.. I hope I haven't been fooling myself.  I really need more crafting time!

This week over at Paper Craft Crew we have an Inspiration Challenge.  What do you think of when you see this Challenge Graphic??

So when I saw the Challenge Graphic, the first thing I thought of was Feathers.. but I didn't really have a current feather stamp and didn't want to pull out something retired.  One of my new resolutions is to try my best to use current product!  As I was looking through some of my stamp sets I realized that the Peacock would work perfectly for this one!  

I learned so many things while making this card.. lol  First of all, I realized that if I had stamped the Peacock higher I could have had it standing on the "celebrate" die cut.. that would have been awesome.  Also, I realized that since I didn't stamp it that way and since I wanted to sponge the bottom, I should have sponged prior to embossing the bottom portion because the Smoky Slate ink really did make the gold embossing a little dull.  I tried to wipe it with a paper towel to remove the ink sitting on the embossed part but it didn't really do a great job.  So .. you have the awesome opportunity to learn from my mistakes.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Blessings, Tina
