With Sympathy Peacock

I don't usually use 'bold' colours on sympathy cards, preferring softer or more neutral colours, but I decided to give it a try with an all teal card and see what happened. I rather like the result, although I'm not sure I'd do a lot of sympathy cards like this!

I cut a card base from card from papermill directed and used paper from jillibean soup's neopolitan bean bisque paper pack. The peacock stamp is from Flonz and the sentiment from craftwork cards. I added white pearls on the peacocks tail feather eyes for some added interest, without over loading the card.

I'm submitting this to:
