Beautiful Peony


This beautiful stamp by Hero Arts is called the Classic Tea Flower, but it reminds me of the gorgeous peonies that bloom  in my garden in June.  I stamped it once on the white cardstock, and then again on a scrap, and colored in the flower with markers.  After I stamped the sentiment, I cut out the flower and added it to the card front.  I am entering this in the CASE Study Challenge #83, that included this lovely, super simple card design for inspiration,


and also in the Lily Pad Flower Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I love to read your comments.

  1. Absolutely beautiful. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers. I bought a plant but it didn't do anything here.... so disappointed.

    Love the card!!

    Hugs,

  2. Gorgeous! I love peonies...they are so full of beauty it seems that they are bursting!
    I love the way you layered the blossom.
    I have been so swamped with DH's health issues (trying to stay close to him in the house, go to the doctors with him etc) and then Miss C and her cards and blog...I am a bit exhausted...
    I will get the birds done for you but it might take me another week. My neighbour, Lisa, at Dreaming of Creativity blog, told me that she has a bird image I can stamp off for you too. I just have to get over there. Usually we craft together on Wednesday evenings but last week got cancelled and maybe this week too!
