Inspired Birthday Wishes

This card is for the Flourishes focus challenge this month, to use a peacock feather as inspiration. I used an image from Figs and Pomegranates and colored it with Copic markers, then cut it out.

The background was sponged with So Saffron and Green Gable inks, then embossed with my Perfectly Paisley Cuttlebug folder. The sentiment is from Tag Lines and the ovals are cut using my Nestabilities.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
