Rooted in Nature, Panel Card for Guys

Welcome back to my corner of the world

The Royal Peacock Stamp set has been so very popular and I am sure I will be sharing more cards with it but today it is the stamp that puts highlights on the peacocks tail that is the focus of my card, along with some gold heat embossing.
