I hope this finds you all well and happy and ready
to see more Pinque Peacock goodness! This is my
VERY FIRSTopportunity to post since I was selected
as one of the very lucky Pinquettes!
 
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
 
Today I would like to share with you a pretty card I
made using some pretty pastel colors. One of our
creative options this month as a Pinquette
was to use pastel colors in our design.
 
 
I started with some BEAUTIFUL fabric covered buttons
from the Pinque Peacock Store. How pretty are those buttons??
When I first looked at these buttons, they did scream "spring"
to me and also "flowers". How would I make these buttons
turn into flowers for my project? Well as the pretty centers, no doubt!
 
 
I cut 3 different types of flowers using both
my old Trusty Cricut and also using my
Silhouette Cameo!
 
 
 
How perfect are the button centers!
I added a bit of leaves and then mounted
the card using a background embossed
with a Cuttlebug folder.
 
 
I did a bit of "fussing" with the loopy flower to
 give the petals a more life-like appearance.
I added foam layering squares to some
of the blossoms for dimension.
 
 
I am just "tickeld pink" to be able to share with you today!
Thank you so much for visiting us at the Pinque Peacock.
Please head over to the store to see such lovely
Springtime items for your projects!

Sweet Sweet Teresa,
This card is phenomenal. It makes it feel like Spring is here (despite the snow flurries we are still getting here in OHIO)...Love those fabulous flowers and adore the FCB in the centers!
