Yard Sale Card

I went to an amazing scrapbook yard sale last month and got quite a few new supplies/tools to add to my scrapbook stash.  The theme for the card swap at Red Letter Journal this month was animals.  I had purchased a cute stamp set at the yard sale that I decided to use.  While making my cards I also decided to use several other yard sale purchases.  Here is my card
The stamps, circle punch, embossing folder and buttons were all from Shirley's yard sale. The flower punch, embossing powders, and paper were all from other yard sales. Here is a close up of the peacock
Here is the coordinating 6x6 I made. This is my daughter in her homecoming dress from her Sophmore year.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
