Pretty as a Peacock

If you're looking for the Joy's Life blog hop, please click HERE!
Greetings, my blog friends, and happy Saturday.  
I have my first official post as a Pinque Pinquette today, and I couldn't be more excited! I love Pinque Peacock products (say that three times fast!) so it's a joy to design for the company.
For my first project, I thought it would be fun to use a peacock.  Here's a real beauty, strutting his stuff.

The beautiful beaded stick pins can be found in the Pinque Peacock store HERE.  The peacock stamp and sentiment are from Raisin Boat stamps. I colored the peacock with Copic markers. The set is called, appropriately, "Pretty Bird." Designer papers are a 6x6 pad by SEI. The easel card design is from
Here's close up of the beaded stick pins and the 3 Girl JAM harvest bundle ribbon (this is harvest orange):
