This has been a long week hasn't it!! So many families
affected by tragedy with the bombing in Boston and the explosion
in Texas and a couple more families I know dealing with some
 grim diagnoses. Praying for all of these families!

It's Friday and Katie Wenger has challenged us to make a Stand Up Z Fold card. 
 This was one of those fun quick and easy cards. You can find her tutorial here 
 and see all the other girls card too.I started with a  teal base and a
dp that  has lots of color and movement in it reminding me of
the beautiful peacock.Actually they are real characters, very noise
and the Best watch "dogs"! I used to have some of these majestic
birds and was could hardly wait to use one of these images.

This is from one the new April  sets  Be A Showoff.
After cutting out the mat with a Spellbinder I stamped three
 I colored with some copics then went over part of it with some 
Sparkling H2Os for lots of glimmer. If you have seen peacocks you
 know that their feathers are vibrant in color have the most 
beautiful iridescence's to them while the hens are rather dull in comparison. 
.Although my camera didnt capture it
the H2Os really did add a very nice shimmer to the feathers.
 After coloring my peacock I cut him out and mounted him with foam dots onto
the stamped and shaded mat.Added MFT looped border and made a little flower 
stop with a pinwheel for a center.
