Sparkly Peacock

Hello, and happy Monday.
Here's a sparkly card made using Hero Arts and Papertrey Ink stamps.  I adore this peacock. :)

I loved doing the cross stitch on this card.  Here's a link to a video showing how I did it. :)
Have a good day.

Your stitching is perfect and I LOVE the tail - gorgeous (isn't it a pity that peacocks are so beautiful to look at but have such horrible cawing schreeching voices!! (A peacock escaped from a neighbours garden (this was a few years ago) and crossed a busy road, walked through some houses and came into my back garden then climed up on top of my greenhouse!! It took me ages to realise what was making all the noise!!

gorgeous card Lucy! I like your links (via little icons) to your materials at the bottom of the post - its the first time I have clicked on one! Must get my sewing machine out and try stitching on a card, unfortunately it is not handy - have to get extension cord, get all the ornaments off the sewing cabinet etc etc, otherwise I would probably papercraft with it often
