Young Crafters Unite Challenge

Here's another challenge entry for the day - this one is for Young Crafters Unite.

{If you are looking for the Paper Smooches Challenge click here.}

The challenge is to create an envelope to match the card - no required stamps to use at all! [which I like because I hate when I don't have a particular company's line of stamps; it makes me feel bad]

So here's what I created:

I started out with a blue card, and embossed it with this super gorg Fiskars peacock feather background using Zing! powder in metallic teal.  I stamped the peacock onto white cardstock using various shades of ColorBox ink.  Purple and True Blue Stickles were added to the peacock after I placed it on some ultraviolet cardstock and gave some depth with foam dots.  The tag quotes "Proud to be your Friend" in teal marker, and inked with Peeled Paint, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, and Dusty Concord Distress Inks.  Looped through with some purple satin ribbon and fun feathery blue ribbon.  A couple dots of Liquid Pearls in White Opal to frame it out.  Don't forget the embossed feather on the card to match!

Check out the detail on this proud peacock!

Hope you enjoy!!  Thanks for looking, and if you're new to Pearl Gateway and like what you see, I'd love to share more with you as a follower!
