 The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"You May Bow"
                                                         

Today's feature is "Be a Showoff".  The title of this set makes me laugh and takes me back a bit.  When I lived in FL, I lived on a campus beside a river and several Peacocks resided there as well.  One of them would see himself in the bumpers of cars and he would peck at the bumpers for hours!

Well, this little guy isn't pecking anything, he sat nice and still and was a pleasure to color!
I added gems to the tale feathers.


The inside:


For my second card I stamped the feather on DP, die cut a tag and added a jewel!

 Thanks for stopping by today.  If you leave a comment on my blog and my teammate's blogs you will be in the drawing to win today's stamp set!

I am entering my card to Craftin Desert Diva's - color challenge with a Peacock feather photo inspiration.
