Birthday Peonies

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this stamp set by WPLUS9, called Peonies.  I love flowers and this one has such possibilities for lush blooms.  I confess this card took me almost 3 hours to finish.  I really had a tough time stamping the peony images, until I went to You Tube and watch the WPLUS9 video showcasing this set.  They are not meant to line up perfectly...that was my sticking point.  Once I saw that, I was able to stamp my blooms.   I fussy cut them, and then decided where to place them on the panel. Next I stamped  the stems and leaves.  Then I cut a glittery panel to mat the focal point.  I next used the WPLUS9 lattice die for another panel layer.  I attached the blooms and added some wink of stella for some shine.  The card was finished with a gold embossed birthday sentiment from SSS on vellum.

Thanks for stopping by!
