Oh, my goodness!! Who doesn’t love elegant peacocks?  This stamp set is amazing..and free with a $50.00 purchase!! This is the stamp set I had to start with because peacocks always take my breath away. I was a little frustrated that I couldn’t come up with a way to match their majesty, but I guess this turned out okay. It was obvious to me what paper I wanted to use because the colors and pattern just screamed peacock to me, (I know, I’m more than just a little crazy). Let’s talk details.
