Thankful Peacock

Do you ever hoard your stampin' supplies? C'mon, admit it. You've bought some wonderful embellishments and they sit on the shelf. Sound familiar? Well, I bought a Pretties Kit well over a year ago and have used hardly any of it. So today, I forced myself to put some pieces to good use.

I love this peacock image from the "Very Thankful" stamp set. If you didn't know, Stampin' Up! donates $2 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities for every one of these stamp sets sold.
I inked up the stamp with Certainly Celery and then used a sponge dauber to add some Bermuda Bay on it. I used some polka dot ribbon, but turned it over to use the solid side instead. Using mini glue dots, I added some half-pearls from the Pretties Kit to the ribbon. I hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pretty. Love the color combination and the two-tone peacock. Hoard supplies? Never! Or are you asking about the piles of untouched dsp, pretties and hodgepodge? LOL
