Another Peacock!

Hi there!  I was having fun over the weekend with the peacock single stamp from the World Treasures stamp set.  I should have just gone ahead and purchased the whole set since I really like all of the images.  What was I thinking?  Anyway....back to the card.  The top layer was embossed with the new Modern Mosaic embossing folder after cutting out the middle section with the Labels Collection Framelits. (Hint: You always want to do your embossing last so that the raised areas don't get flattened.)  The peacock was stamped on a 2-1/2" circle and colored with markers.  The Gumball Green panel is popped up on Dimensionals.  My ribbon treatment consisted of twisting some Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit satin ribbon.  Something different - at least for me.
The embossing folder will be available for purchase on May 31st when the new 2013-14 Stampin' Up! catalog makes its debut - a day early!  Actually, you'll be able to order from all three catalogs that day!  I don't think that has ever happened before.

All Stampin' Up! supplies used unless otherwise noted
Stamps: World Treasures Peacock - single stamp
Paper: Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, White
Ink: Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green markers
Other: Labels Collection Framelits, Modern Mosaic embossing folder, satin stitched ribbon, Dimensionals

My heart goes out to the families in Oklahoma trying to pick up the pieces (no pun intended) after a tornado hit the area.  Is it just me, or does it seem that we are having more devastating tornadoes these days?  Seems like the country is just having weird weather in general.

Well, must run for now.  Thank you for visiting today!  You're visits are always appreciated!
