Strut Your Stuff~Sneak Peak

Are you ready for another fabulous release this month from Flourishes!?!  Today I am showing you a sneak peek card of the stamp set Strut Your Stuff, which will be available on Friday.  For this card, I wanted a simple but classy feel.  So I took the large feather in the set, and at the bottom stamped the feather with a green ink, then towards the top I stamped the feather in a aqua ink.  Thats how I got it to look two toned.  Since peacock feathers are really colorful, I went back in with a blue copic marker, then with a pink shade to make the image pop a little.  I just happened to have matching pink satin May Arts ribbon (found here, 5yds for $2.25) to tie a pretty bow with.  A girl can never have too many buttons, so I added one with some twine...waalaa perfection.  A simple and perfect card to be sent in the mail to brighten someone's day.  Are any of you playing along with the Timeless Tuesdays, with the Friends of Flourishes blogger team this week?  This weeks challenge is to use a button.  So go check out the Flourishes blog for more details.  Anyone can play along, and they always choose a winner...no Flourishes stamps needed, use keyword FTTC2 on SCS, if you upload there.
