Pretty Peonies

After seeing Papertrey Ink's announcement that they are bringing out the die collection to match the Pretty Peonies anniversary set, I just had to pull to out today for a couple of cards, and I definitely need those dies! Will be so much easier than cutting out all the flowers by hand like I did on these two cards!

Anyway this first one is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #117 to use So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White, although I did have to add a little Chocolate Chip in there as well. I really love the way this one came out, even though it's way more CAS than I would normally do.

My next card is for Make It Monday's Challenge #65 to use scraps of patterned papers to make a background pattern, Lilypad's Palette Challenge to use these colours and F4A116 to make a 6 x 3.5 inch card. Such a cute size. I totally love these colours together and love the idea of putting lots of spotty papers together to make a pretty background too.

And here's my card.

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by.
