I am sharing another take with Build-a-Flower Tree Peony.
Here is my first take with this gorgeous stamp set.
My 2nd take is a bright red one! I had seen really gorgeous pink peonies in my neighborhood, but not in this red-ish color. But it really doesn't matter, right?
Bright and beautiful flowers are always welcomed, whether they are real or not. Since the flower is taking the center stage, a nice subtle background is just what this card needed.
Dotted Swirl is one of my favorite cover dies. The effect is similar to Embossing folder, but the cover dies has all these tiny hole pierced into the paper.
The next thing I'd like to highlight about this card is all those golden touches: the gold Washi Tape, sequins and metal thread. You can say: these are a few of my favorite things ( can you hear Julie Andrew singing....!!?)
I sent this very card to Lisa Spangler, a dear blog friend, who experienced loss of Grandma. I think it makes her and her hubby feel loved and comforted.
I hope that you feel loved and comforted if you are struggling or experiencing a tough time.
Thanks for stopping by!
