Beauty with Pinque Peacock

Hi everyone! Today is my day to post for Pinque Peacock..
Today I have a Scrapbook page for you. I scrapped my Nieces Senior picture.
She graduated this year and will be going off to college this next school year. So I wanted this page to be full of beautiful things to match this incredible young ladies beauty. She is beautiful inside and out.
So I grabbed my boxes of Pinque! Here is the first sneak peek.
 One of the reasons I love Pinque Peacock is because it is so versatile. I used a beautiful Beaded Stick Pin and a small piece of netting and made the dragonfly on the upper right of this pic. Did you know you can order the Elegant Florals with or without a center? I normally purchase mine with out the center embellishment because then I can add my own to change the whole look of the flower! You can see the pretty yellow and white elegant floral and that pretty Pink one.. Well I added a blingy victorian type center to it. Now look at that amazing  Hot Pink and Cream Elegant Loop De Loop Flower. It is perfect with that Large Rhinestone Center. I wanted Elegant and I got it with Pinque peacock.
Here is the next close up:

I also love the Unique Made to Order Buttons the pretty blue one in the lower right is a 1.5 inch and then I added the black heart embellishment to it. They also come in a 3/4 inch. You can get them as a flat back or as a standard back Button. The matching ribbon is from 3 girl jam and I love the stuff it is amazing to work with.
Now here is the full picture of my project
Be sure to visit Pinque Peacock for beautiful unique embellishments!
Jessica even does special orders :)

Here is my card closed:
Now here it is open

This was my first time ever Easel card! Learning the fold was easy but trying to figure out what to do with it after that was the challenge.  I started with a pale orange shimmer cardstock from A Muse Studio. Then added the lily cardstock to the base.
I added the birthday die cut then used the Happy sliders and added them to the deep red thin ribbon.
On top I used 2 Prima Butterfly drops. The ribbon I had on hand. I tied the bow using the 3 girl jam bow maker! I love that thing.
The flowers I made with McGill punches Ink and stickles. I then added the Dream Tag and the clear flourish to the back.
Here is a link to the tutorial on how to make the lillies! Shelley Toney has great tutorials
So that is my project in a nut shell. Thank-you for stopping by.
