They have wonderful stick pins, handmade fabric flowers, fabric covered buttons and more! I have purchased many items and love them all!! Hop on over to the Pinque Peacock Shop and see all the beautiful items.

Here's some super inspiration from the Pinquettes at Pinque Peacock and guest designers.....

Kimberly @ KP Kre8tions

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.
