FF Challenge #32 Chocolate & Teal

Hi Everyone!
This is my first time entering one of your challenges. I kept seeing your blinkie on some of the Blogs that I have visited.  But I have not been doing the card making thing that long.  So getting entries done by cutoff date takes me a little longer.  So I've slowley adding more challenges.  And when I saw what this weeks challeng was Chocolate & Teal it seemed like a perfect fit for this little cutie.  I fell in Love with Her when I saw her done by Melanie of . The Peacock Feathers and one of the sentiments that comes with the Stamp reminded me of a trip to the Cincinnati Zoo that my husband & I took when he was home on leave. We had a encounter with a Don Juan Peacock . Let's put it this way the strangest things can scare a big bad Marine.  So now when ever my husband is starting to tell a story that I don't want told all I have to say is PEACOCK. That stops him dead in his tracks. Ok, I had better get to my entry.
Thank you for considering my entry. Have a good week.

I became obsessed with the feathers. While looking for pictures on I learned way more this weekend about peacocks & their feathers that I wanted.
Feathers are done with Prismacolor Pencils
Gold stickles & then I went over them with Gelly Roll Stardust Clear pen

The roll on glitter pen accents the feathers but does not show up unless you get it in just the right light
The rest of the coloring I did using the Prismacolors
