Hi peeps! Hope you have escaped the buckets of rain today! This Best Wishes card is stamped with the Elusive Images Peacock Lady, and small Peacock, plus corner flourishes from an Elusive Images Butterfly theme plate. The greeting and oval scallop punch are from Stampin'Up. I have coloured part of the image with Sakura pens, and added a pearl onto the lady's hand.
The BP is a freebie download from the Funky Fairys Blue Christmas set, (see the link in my side-bar) and it seemed to be the perfect match for the image as it is turquoise, and has swirls rather like a Peacock's tail feathers!! The edges of the paper were inked with Versafine Smokey Grey before layering onto a black A5 card.

Lotsa hugs, Sylvia xxxxx
