Peony Love.

 Hello everyone: As always, I hope and pray you and your families are doing well, taking care of yourselves and each other.  Try to stay healthy and safe and please, please WEAR YOUR MASKS.


Hello everyone: My teammates and I over at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE, have a new one for you for the month of November.  This time we want to see SENTIMENTS on your cards. I know we almost always stamp one but this time, it needs to be more noticeable.

Here's the card I created to inspire you to come and play along.

This beautiful wreath of Peonies is from an old Flourishes set called "Peony Love" (2012).  I stamped it on Canson Mixed Media paper with Versafine black ink and clear heat embossed it, colored it with SU markers and fussy cut it.

The background panel is embossed with a SU Tufted Textured embossing folder, (retired), I added gold paint to each of the little dots for a little bling.

Now, I'm afraid I just can't remember where I got the die I used to cut the sentiment so, if any of you recognize it, I would be very grateful if you could let me know, thank you in advance.


This is the INSIDE of my card.

The sentiment and the flower are from a retired Flourishes stamp set called "Lenten Rose".
I hope you go and take a look at THE FLOWER CHALLENGE blog to get more inspiration from my awesome teammates.

Thank you for stopping by today.
Stay healthy and safe and PLEASE wear your masks.

I didn't know this wreath was a Flourishes set, but it's very pretty! I have it as a PP digi. Gorgeous coloring! Your sentiment die is perfect because it becomes part of the layout, rather than just a sentiment. Well done, Maria!
