Peaceful Peony Sympathy

Welcome

I love the way this card came together as a soft and gentle expression of sympathy


My starting point was a piece of paper that was on my desk - it came as a gift is some stamps I had purchased, a loooooooooong time ago.....
This was paired with stamps from the Sweet 'n' Sassy stamp set  Peaceful Peonies


I stamped the sentiment directly on the paper in Bottle green ink


Stamped (in bottle ink), coloured (with Prisma color pencils) and fussy cut the flower from the set and popped it up in the corner, and added some micro beads to the centre for some texture.  Rhinestones were added to some of the highlighted stars on the paper


The inside was finished with a scripture from an ODBD set, and the peony  image repeated.
