Pretty Peacock

Here's a card I made last night using the stamp set Very Thankful.  I decided to create my own color combo for this card - I used Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, and Old Olive for the color scheme - a bit different, but I really like the way it turned out.  I colored the stamp using my stampin' write markers and then stamped it onto watercolor paper.  I used the air spritzer tool to add a mist of melon mambo onto the main image also.  I used up a few more scraps for the patterned paper spots and finished off with my usual bling - a few rhinestones - a combination of green and pink and a bit of crystal effects with dazzling diamonds on the peacocks circles and head feathers (not that you can see that!).  It's really pretty in person - pictures never do sparkles any kind of justice!
