Strut Your Stuff - FTTC #91

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC91)! This week Betty Wright is hosting. Betty is challenging us to find inspiration with Cafe Baudelaire prints (http://www.etsy.com/shop/CafeBaudelaire?page=20). Visit the site and choose a picture that inspires you. The images are French shabby chic, but that style card or project is not required. We would love to see your take with your card making style.

OMGosh! Such gorgeous things there!! I spent way too much time looking but I kept coming back to this print:

And this is my card, inspired by the print:

I'm using the peacock and sentiment from Strut Your Stuff. I stamped the peacock on Classic White card stock, colored it with Copic markers, and cut it out and popped it up. All patterned paper is from DCWV Mariposa mat stack and I'm using Taken With Teal card stock. I tea died some seam binding, made a bow, and added some Prima flowers to echo the roses on the print. 

Now, be sure to go see what my team mates used for their inspiration for this challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!
