I came across the various die cut elements of this peacock when looking for something else in one of my oddments containers where I tend to pop any left over die cut bits and pieces when I have a bit of a clear up of my working space. Actually I pulled out a couple of the tail feathers and decided to search through the bits to see if I had enough for a whole bird and fortunately they were all there so I put a peacock together. There were a few 'spares' leaving me with a dilemma - do I keep them and go through my snippets boxes to find matching card for cutting the pieces to make another bird or do I just 'lose' them into the bin. You don't have to be mad to craft but I'm sure it helps and I do so hate throwing away even the smallest of pieces!!
Having assembles said peacock I then spent some time looking for more card and paper to make up a complete card. Cut and embossed an oval along with a branch and a larger oval for a second layer. Some scraps of card to make a banner for the stamped sentiment and that's a few more oddments assembled into a card.
