Peony Posey

Welcome

I wanted to make a feminine thank you card, and this is the result.


I sorted through the NBUS file and found this stamp from Indigo Blue, Peony Posey (which appears to have been discontinued).  I went to place it on a acrylic block, and my largest was not large enough... then I thought of a hint I read somewhere ages ago - use a Cuttlebug plate - it worked a treat.!!

I coloured the image with chalks, and added gold ink dots to the centre of the blue flowers - forget-me-nots?


The stamp was so large that it was really all I needed to make the card - other than the embossed Thanks and a doodled edge.

I am linking this to:
