Peacock Pair

New TOYYYYYZZZZZ!!!! I got my Sale-a-Bration/Occasions catty order late Wednesday afternoon and the stamp set I couldn't wait to bust out first was the SAB set Beautiful Peacock.  I even made two cards with it!

Click to embiggen!  I used Shimmery White cardstock for these so they're SO pretty IRL (it's super overcast right now, can't take a better picture).  So check out this week's Color Throwdown:

Here's why I made two cards.  The write-up for this challenge called the colors navy, aqua, and pink, but to me they looked more like dark purple, aqua, and lighter purple.  So I made one card with Night of Navy, Pool Party and Flirty Flamingo (on the left), and the second card with Elegant Eggplant, Pool Party, and Sweet Sugarplum.  What do YOU think it looks like?

Also meet this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

I don't like having things extend past the card front because then you either have to make the card a little smaller to get it in an envelope or else use a nonstandard envelope size (and I don't have that envelope punch board thing).  So basically I made the sketch into a panel on my card and the rectangle extends to the edge of the card front but it still looks like the sketch.

Well, it's just about time to take the babe with me to the gym.  Cheers, y'all!
