The Sunday CD Challenge - Inspired by Peacocks

What a day yesterday, with a 9 force gale and what comes naturally we had a thoroughly wet day here in Somerset, today has been slightly better only showers and the wind is not so bad and seems to be dieing down. It was not only an Autumn day but felt cold and its only the beginning of September. I had to go to the surgery for the dressing to be changed I got soaked, only a couple more days and the stitches will be out.

Today I bring you my card for the Sunday Cd Challenge
this week it is Inspired by Peacocks. My card is a peacock stamp by Creative Expressions, which Vernon brought me last year. I heat embossed the image with white, a touch of green and purple embossing powders. The backing paper came from Joanna Sheen's, The royal horticultural Society CD collection which I cut into strips and weaved together for a change, the flowers are from Joanna Sheen's shop and the parchment feathers in white and purple parchment paper white which I made myself. The pattern for them came from the Parchment Magazine last year. I used up scraps of ribbon in a various colours of a peacock.
A close up. Unfortunately the colours of the peacock don't seem to have come out in the photo. Gold peel offs to finish the card off.
I hope you like my creation today.
Well I know the weather is going to be changeable this week so I hope its not too bad where ever you live.
Until we meet again in blog land, take care
