MTSC62 & FTTC55: Peony

Hi All,

Well, I have been working on a couple things behind the scenes, so I haven't been able to post in a few days.  However, I am participating in 2 challenges with this card: MTSC62 (Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge), and FTTC55 (Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge).  The Flourishes challenge was to use flowers (um, I thought those were the only stamps I owned!).  The sketch is here:

I actually used my retired Crew Kids Girl Simply Scrappin' Kit for the papers in this one.
My card base is Basic Gray.  Then, I added a circle of the DSP from the kit (cut with my Coluzzle), and distressed the edges.  On top of that, I added a block of another DSP from the kit with distressed edges.  The photo corners are self-adhesive die cuts from the kit, but I added some silver pearls (Michael's) to each.  I also added some silver pearls to the top corners on the card base.

I tied some striped Wild Wasabi ribbon in a knot around that layer.

I cut a smaller circle out of Neenah Solar White CS with my Coluzzle and stamped the main flower from Peony in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on.  I coloured it with my Copics, then stamped the word "Peony" along the bottom of the flower, and added another pearl to the "o".

The sentiment is from a Close To My Heart set called Treasure Life.  I stamped it in black ink onto a Whisper White strip, with the end cut into a "v".  I added an SU Mini Library Clip to the end of that, and attached it with Dimensionals.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
