Dream Big

Happy TGIT!  I'm so excited for Scandal tonight (how AMAZING was it last week?!?!) but I had to squeeze a quick card in cause OMG I've been working on it for a week.  The color inspiration challenge at Chocolate Coffee and Cards instantly said PEACOCK to me, so that's where I let my muse take me.

This was a really artistic, mixed media journey for me.  I painted and stenciled the backgrounds, die cut and painted the flowers, and fussy cut the peacock out.  Add in the fact that I was out of pop dots and had to make my dimensionals the old fashioned way and it's needless to say that this card took me the entire day with drying time (and two breaks to watch Arrow and Chicago PD).  I'm also super excited that I had flowers left over and can make another card later in the week.  It's not that often that I get to play around without at DT commitment in mind.

I'm entering this in a few challenges:
Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!
