New Inkspirational Challenge

Hi everyone!  It's that time again for another Inkspirational challenge.  This time it's an inspiration picture and what a great picture it is!  So many possibilities.  Check it out!

Fabulous isn't it?  I love peacocks.  Those tail feathers are so gorgeous.  Looking at this picture made me remember the extra peacock feathers I had and I was determined to use them in my card.  I loved the Art Deco feel of the picture too so I ran with that idea as well.  Take a look at my card...

I'm very happy with the results of this card.  I used a interlocking circle embossing folder (Darice) for my background panel.  Then I added a strip of patterned paper matted with some black.  I printed off the sentiment using Microsoft Word and used the font called Broadway.  I trimmed it down and attached it to the strip.  Then I added a piece of old costume jewelry and a peacock feather.  I just love the colours of that feather!

I hope you will all join in on the fun.  I look forward to seeing all your amazing creations.  We have a wonderful guest designer as well.  Pauline of Crafting with Cotnob.  She made a gorgeous card and you should definitely stop by and give her some love!  Her colouring is amazing!  Check out the other Inkspirational DT members projects too. They are all fantastic!

I'm going to link up to the following challenges:
