Feel The Love Challenge - Not Your Typical Peacock

Hi All,
Once again, I am participating in a Flourishes challenge! Today is the deadline - you can find the post HERE.  The challenge was to make a card that was perfect for the seasons of love, as Valentine's Day is coming up.  What I know of peacocks is that they attract their mates with their colourful feathers and wide span.  I know that the males are the colourful ones, but I am ignoring that at the moment.

I decided to make another Clean and Simple (CAS) card.  The card base is Whisper White, with some score lines across the top and bottom using my Scor-Pal.
For the main panel, I cut out a Pink Pirouette Frame with my Label Nesties, and a white piece to go underneath.  I mounted both pieces with Dimensionals.  
I used the stamp set Strut Your Stuff - I stamped the sentiment in Memento Brown ink onto the white piece, and I added some pink pearls from Michael's to the left side.

I stamped the peacock in Memento Brown ink onto Neenah Solar White CS, and coloured it with Copic markers.  I cut it out (although it was a trifle difficult), and mounted it in the frame with Dimensionals.

Hope you enjoyued, and thanks for stopping by!
