Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party #4

Welcome to another Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party! This linky party is a "Peacock Color Challenge". Inspired by our sponsor Pinque Peacock.

You must use at least one color on your project and it must be the focal point.  You may also use several or all the colors on your project. You may have accent colors other than the colors on the chart.

Every Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party here. I will designate a theme and invite you to share projects you've made!!

And don't forget about the prizes! Every linky party will have a sponsor and a winner, plus a top 3! The winner will be announced on a semi-weekly basis. The more times you link up, the more chances you have to win!! Sponsors will be announced at the beginning of every linky party.

I would love for you to be a follower so you don't miss out when the new linky party starts and the theme of the linky party.

I wanted to try something different for my card. First I covered some tags in  paper from Recollections Pretty as a Peacock paper pad. This paper pad has some awesome papers! I then used my ATG gun to put the tags on my card. I then placed a super big blue button down, on top of the button I then added some beautiful Rumple Ribbon. I made the flowers a few weeks back from the Cricut Artiste Cartridge, who knew they would match so well when I made them. To finish off that part of the card I added a K & Company K-Ology Metal Art Hannah Stitched Beaded Brad. I did take the back off the brad and just glue it down. The silver buttons I've had in my stash for a long time. I did add Studio G glitter glue to the inside of them to finish the card. 

 The pins are from Pinque Peacock and they are so wonderful, I LOVE the colors and I really think they add so much to the card.

Hope you enjoyed all the projects!! Now it's your turn to Craft It Up & Link It Up.
