Little Peony

For today’s Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC528), we have soft, pink & sand. I had some designer paper that had close to the same colors so I built my card around it. I’m not sure why the peony looks sort of orangey real life, it’s a lot more pinky.

After I water colored the peony & background, I used the out of the box technique to die cut it. I added a white layer then put it back on top of the larger background I cut it from originally. Another white layer then it was added to the stitched layer along with the piece of dp.

The Happy was die cut 3 times & stacked together for more dimension, then a few sequins added for a little sparkle. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
