Vintage Peacock Saga

So the story starts like this: I look on the internet at peacock photos to get a new idea on how to color them. I find a lovely vintage print on vanilla paper. I would love to show this inspiration piece to you but my PC rebooted itself and I didn't have the link saved. Of course, I can't find it now. (Edited to add: HERE it is!) So I use that inspiration piece and make this card:

Then I realize, I was supposed to do a 3D piece...not a card. Now what? I see some info on SCS on According Cards and think it would be a great photo album! SOOOOOO I decide to rip apart my card and turn it into a mini photo album. And here are some closeups of the inside for you:

Stamps: Artful Inkables Paisleys and Peacocks
Paper: Very Vanilla, Baja Breeze, Blue Bayou
Ink: Blue Bayou, Baja Breeze, Creamy Caramel
Accessories: Blender pen, Nesties, SU scallop trim border punch, SU word window punch, SU modern label punch, SU photo corners punch, ribbon from Pink Hedgehog
