70th Birthday Perfect Peacock, Blendabilities and Gold Sequins from Stampin' Up!

Good morning crafty friends.

I hope your week is going well and you are enjoying the summer sunshine. The weather is beautiful on the Isle of Wight and Summer, Sylvie and I have been enjoying our summer strolls. 

I have just about managed to fit in some crafting over the past few days getting ready for this weekends craft class at my home. I also sat down to create a very special 70th Birthday card for a crafty friend of mine who is celebrating her special birthday next week.

My favourite stamp from the new catalogue is the Perfect Peacock. I fell in love with this stamp the first time I opened the catalogue. I knew it would make a beautiful feature for this card. I have stamped the image using Memento Black ink on to a 14cm square of Whisper White. I then coloured with my Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie Blendabilities Markers. I embellished the feathers with Gold Sequin Trim. For the sentiment I used Memorable Moments stamped in Island Indigo and Gold Encore Metallic Ink.

Card layers: 

Coastal Cabana: 14.8cm x 29.6cm (scored at 14.8cm)
Island Indigo:        14.6cm x 14.6cm
Real Red:             14.4cm x 14.4cm
Whisper White:    14cm x 14cm

And to all those who may be wondering how the weigh in went yesterday, half a pound down *phew*. This week I am definitely back on plan to get me my 1 stone award next week. Keep your fingers crossed for me. I am going to resist the urge to treat myself to a Caramel Macchiato anytime soon.
