On my card I used this sweet little peacock from the newly release set called "Paisleys and Peacocks" from Artful INKable!

I colored the peacock with su! markers, and the water blender. I also added perfect pearls for sparkle and shine. Its hard to see in this pic.

On the background dp I added some lace and sewing. the frame is from spellbinders(two different ones) , I then added some flowers,leaves,and branches! My pink flower is distressed with 2 different pinks!!!
