I really wanted to see what the Royal Peacock set looked like, especially this stamp with a different color palette. So I tried one in pink and one in royal blue. I’m not ashamed to tell you my first go at the pink Peacock did not go well. LOL. If at first you don’t succeed, try try again! I am pretty happy with the second go around and the Royal Blue card is great for those men in our lives. Both of these cards were shipped off to my Mum. Can’t wait to see who she sends these to!
