Peony Birthday:


Good morning.  The sun is rising with pinks and oranges, the birds are chirping, and my coffee is nice and hot.  It's going to be a good day :)

In the past 2 days I have made 5 cards which is rather impressive for me considering I work full time and have other obligations.  The rushed craft end is in the site though, I think I can take a breath after tonight, just in time for Easter :)

I have another rather simple card to share:
 Card Ingredients:  Stampendous! Peony stamp, Martha Stewart Clear Embossing ink, Stampendous! White embossing powder, Recollections cardstock, Celebrate It ribbon, Martha Stewart bakers twine, Dress It Up button.  Tools:  heat embossing gun.

I made this Peony card for the following challenges:  Flourishes Challenge and Going Grey- birthdays, Ribbon Carousal - ribbon and spring, The Kraft Journal - spring and Kraft, A Gem of A Challenge - aquamarine.

Okay, that's it for me today - thanks so much for stopping by and visiting :)

HI Deanne,

I just love this gorgeous but simple card, so much so in fact that I will be showcasing it on The Kraft Journal, Feature Me Friday segment of the blog this Friday the 13th. Please be sure to stop by the blog on that day (or any day thereafter) to pick up your Featured Artist button and thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Kraft Journal too!).
