|Craftwork Cards Vogue Collection and Tim Holtz tattered rose border have been used|
There is a fab new group on facebook called the Craftwork Cards Fan page, run by the awesome Natalie Reeves. They have a competition this month that has an autumnal theme so I browsed through my stash and was inspired by the Vogue collection, peacocks and falling autumnal coloured flowers became my inspiration.
I used some real peacock feathers, fussy cut the large Pacock and used my ball tools and pinflair glue to get some shape to the peacock.
|I added some gold and teal stikles to the feathers for a bit of bling|
I decorated the sides with Craftwork Card ooh lala collection and added lots of flowers made using Tim Holtz tattered rose border
I mat and layered some cream cad that I ran through a butterfly embossing folder on some lush bronzy, gold paper I had in my stash.

I used the crafters companion enveloboxer to make a complimentary envelope.
