Beautiful Peacock Friend ~ CCMC491, TGIFC140

Hello stampers and welcome to another color challenge for the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge site!  Isn't this a wonderfully rich combination?  At first I was not a fan of these colors but as I started to brainstorm about them I decided that they might fit nicely with the new Beautiful Peacock set from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  I think I was right!  I started out by inking the bottom half of the tail feathers in Peekaboo Peach and then the top half in Berry Burst.  I took a sponge dauber, dipped it in the Berry Burst ink and then blended the colors together on the stamp.  I gave it a good huff before I stamped it on my cardstock.  I did the same thing with the swirly tail feathers.  I stamped the body in Bermuda Bay.  
I CASE'd designer Tami Hewlett's card from TGIF Challenges 140 to help me with my card.  I turned my card vertical but kept the same sketch.

For the background I used some Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.  I tied in the gold by added three little gold faceted gems.
I actually love the way this card came out!  I really thought I would struggle with these colors, but this came together fairly quick!
I hope you'll find time to play along with us!  Just add your card to the CCMC Facebook page!
