A bird with Bling!

If ever a bird has the bling factor it surely must be the peacock, when I coloured in this image from Tiffany Doodles I added some Stickles, then some blue mirri board that I've had for ever, then a bit more...  I was a bit intimidated at the thought of colouring this, but I brought up a photo of a peacock on my computer and foud that, with the shading already there it needed minimal colouring.  

I've based the card on Jessica's sketch at There She Goes, the border is an EK Success punch, there's a matching ribbon round it which shows up much better in real life, the sentiment is computer generated.  Background paper from Artylicious and the embossed card is sanded and distressed Coredinations.

My card is for the following challenges:
There She Goes - sketch
Totally Papercrafts - bling it up
4 Crafty Chicks - get your bling on
