Seizure-Inducing Peacock Embroidery

I sincerely hope this doesn't actually induce any seizures out there!!! It's just a lot of different colors.... and that was what I was going for with this rainbow peacock embroidery.
I'm no pro at embroidery (and I'm sure the pro's out there can tell), but I want to get better, so I stitched this up today.
I did some little french knots! Truth be told, I don't really actually know what they're supposed to look like because when they tell you how to do it on youtube, all you see in the finished result is a speck. But this looked fine to me, so I went with it.
The obligatory back-side photo. It looks crazy! Thanks to Artymess for inspiring me to do a little stitchin' with her radical and awesome embroideried ATCs and postcards (specifically these) :D
