I'm grateful for a friend like you peacock card made using the Art Nouveau cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Happy 4th of July, y'all! I hope you all have a safe and fun holiday!

Today I have a card I made using the Art Nouveau cartridge and the Animal Print cuttlebug folder.  I have noticed that peacocks are all the rage at the moment in home decor. A few weeks ago I saw a model home that was decorated entirely in a peacock theme. You would have thought it would have been tacky, but it was actually really beautiful. Anyway, this got me thinking about making a project using a peacock cut. Besides it finally gave me a chance to use this cuttlebug folder!

I used Gypsy, Indian Corn Blue, Creme Brule, Crystal Blue, and Pear cardstock from Close To My Heart.
I used the A Friend Like You stamp set.
I could not make a peacock card and not use my peacock feather cuttlebug folder!

The doily stamped image is from the Love Doily stamp set.
