Peacock card

We've had friends round for lunch today but when they left I managed to sneak up to my craft room while Paul was watching the football and made this simple Peacock card

for the Tandastamps Challenge which is Pretty as a Peacock and also for this months challenge on the Joanna Sheen forum which is 'Feathers'. I've got some real peacock feathers somewhere but I think the craft room gremlins must have borrowed them lol.
The base card is Bazzil bling cardstock and the papers and stamps are all from Graphicus. The main image is stamped with copper EP on to acetate and then glittered on the back. For the border I used a little thingummyjig which was also from Graphicus - I'm not sure what its called but when you heat it up you can press it into a rubber stamp to copy a little section. I'd completey forgotten I had it but found it while I was rummaging around for feathers.
Thanks for looking, I'm back at work tomorrow so I won't have as much time for crafting. Roll on next weekend
