So happy that I had some buds on my peony bush this year, as I received some of my grandmother's bush a couple of years back. Slow start to them, but I guess it takes awhile for them to be established in a new home.
I saw the challenge colors at The Heart Desires and really wanted to stamp the flowers from Altenew's Beautiful Day in two orange tones, I am not sure if these blooms are supposed to be orange? I then stamped leaves in a navy blue ink, and I know that there aren't any of those in real life. That is the nice thing about crafting, you can create what fancies you.
To add a bit more interest to the card, I covered the leaves with some sparkle. Although I feel as though the sentiment is in an awkward location, I hemmed and hawed over the design of the card long enough and called it good. Sometimes one just has to move on, right?
