HHH - Stretching some more!

Happy Hip Hop Hangover! I have another card that I used to challenge myself...still working on that 'GROWTH' goal! Check out these colors:WOW, right? Definitely not typically me, but I love how it turned out! I pulled this color combo from my SU!'s a DP called 'Pink Flamingo', and the colors are Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Cameo Coral, and Summer Sun.
I used the VLVFeb01 sketch for my card, pulled out this adorable peacock from the Unity's January KOTM, and the sentiment from 'Hey Chick' (makes me laugh every time!). I stamped the peacock and the sentiment onto Whisper White, colored with reinkers and blender pens, and cut the image into an oval using my Coluzzle. Then I cut a second oval from Tempting Turquiose, and scalloped the edge with my medium corner rounder. The base is a standard A2 card in Real Red. Next, I layered a 4" x 5 1/4" panel of Tempting Turquoise (with corners rounded), and a 3 3/4" x 5" panel of Cameo Coral (corners rounded and embossed in the Cuttlebug). I added a strip of Summer Sun per the sketch, and taped Real Red grosgrain around the entire panel. I added my image panel using foam tape, and added a bow to the top, and rhinestones as shown in the sketch, and to the centers of the peacock's outermost feathers.

So...what do you think?? Did I pull it off? Too bright? I'd love to hear your comments!
Be sure to check out what the other HHH bloggers have today (either on Unity's blog, or in {this thread} on SCS).
