Peaceful Peacock

My grandma first introduced me to the beauty of peacock feathers. They include our favorite shades of blue and are such a great example of God's artistry. I was very excited to find this carefree image at A Day for Daisies and knew it HAD to be colored. It's my first attempt at coloring this regal bird, and I'm fairly pleased with how it came out.

This card was designed for the Sketch Challenge over at One Stop Crafts Challenge Blog. The Design Team were able to play with some amazing images from A Day for Daisies. I hope you are able to play along with the sketch; you could WIN free digis!
