Proud as a Peacock

Click on any image to enlarge.
Tail Feathers
I seem to be trying a lot of "firsts" lately. These are the first mosaic cards I've ever made. I've wanted to do it for some time, but just wasn't too motivated. This week one of the challenges is to do a mosaic, so I figured this was the time.
No coloring this week. The peacock and the tail feathers are from the "Back to Nature" cd by Polka Doodles. I've had it printed for months, but just didn't know what to do with it, even though it was one of the reasons I purchased the cd. As you can see, I did two different cards with the mosaics. As I'm making two of each of my cards, and I messed up on cutting the other peacock, I figured I wouldn't let the feathers go to waste.
The papers are K&Co; and actully only two different sheets. The one with all of the images has it all on one page. Nice. The pearls are from Recollections. I haven't put a sentiment on them yet, because I'm not sure what to use them for.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Totally Papercrafts - pearls & swirls
Polka Doodles - summer
Dutch Dare Card Challenges - color inspiration
