Prized Peony You Made my Day

Hi!  Happy you stopped by.  It is Thursday which means it is time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  We are back to our rotation between sketch and color challenges.  This week it is a sketch challenge.

ASID-CCMC625-PrizedPeony

I had to pull out my Prized Peony bundle.  Can you believe I haven't used it in 2 weeks!  I know, it is kind of shocking.   Before I forget here is the sketch.

The card base is Basic Black and I used 2 patterns from the Peony Garden DSP.   Love that paper for both the beautiful peony images and the more subtle  designs.  I think I have done this before but I love the peony against the Basic Black circle.  I usually use Whisper White but the Basic Black is very dramatic and I think it really highlights the peony.

To color the peony I used Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends for the flower and Old Olive for the leaves.  Did you notice the 2 gems?  They are the Petal Pink gems from the Elegant Faceted Gems.

The sentiment is from the Ornate Thanks stamp set.  Love the font in this set and it  has a lot of great sentiments.  Below the sentiment  I added a small strip of Black Glitter paper (Aug-Dec mini catalog).  Love the little bit of sparkle.

Thank you stopping by and hope to see you again tomorrow,
