Purple Peacock

Ya know what?  It's time to make Mother's Day cards. And since my mom checks out this blog from time to time, I don't think she'll be surprised when this card arrives in the mail soon.

Mom has a thing for peacocks and purple :)  The layout is based on the latest Retro Sketch:

And the color combo started out being the palette provided by Nacho Average Challenges:

I kinda forgot the Basic Gray.  Ok, so I didn't so much forget it as it just didn't quite work with the rest of my card...I meant to stamp the sentiment in Basic Gray but I forgot and did it in Elegant Eggplant, and then the Eggplant button just looked much better on there to my eye than a Basic Gray one and then there was no other place for the Basic Gray so it got left out.  But the Nacho challenge was still what gave me the idea to do a purple peacock so I'm still gonna count it.

Have a fabby-dabby Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!
