Birthday Peony

 birthday-cards-34

I have a little different card to share today.  I decided I wanted to use my colored pencils and a stamp that I purchased several months ago, but hadn’t used yet.  It is a stamp I purchased from from an individual, and not a stamp company I normally purchase my stamps from.  Her blog address is http://eunjoa.blogspot.com/2016/07.    The blog post showing her stamps is the last blog post for July.  This stamp is the Peony.

These are rather large stamps that are mainly an outline stamp.

I wanted to keep this card simple, so after stamping and coloring the image, I used some black cardstock to mat my image.

I went through my paper stash and found some deep brown floral paper and mounted that on some light pink paper.

My sentiment is from Uptown Brittany the Birthday Girl by Stamping Bella.  I heat embossed it using my Silver Embossing powder by Gina K on some pink cardstock.

Three pink enamel dots were added for some interest, and my card was done.

Thanks for stopping by! 

Happy Crafting!

    Nancee, I sure hope you did a little happy dance after you made this?! Peonies are my favourite flower if I have money to splurge (tulips are my budget favourite). But this is prettier than the real thing! Honestly, I think this is one of the most beautiful cards I have seen!
