DD #46: Deep Pink & Your Choice



Think week at Dynamic Duos we were given one colour and than able to to pick any other colour to go with it.  My choice was Papertrey Ink's NewLeaf.




I don't think that I have put Pretty Peonies away in the last few weeks, It is my favourite flower to grow in the garden..  Beautiful, Fragrant and where I live marks the beginning of summer!  Another thing that has been on my desk since it arrived at my house is the Lil' Inkers Stitched Mat dies.  I am such a sucker for there trademark stitches.




All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White (PTI) Primrose petals (Stampin' Up)
Stamps: Pretty Peonies, Flower Fusion #4
Ink:  Autumn Rose, New Leaf
Dies: Pretty Peonies (PTI) Stitched Mats (Lil' Inkers)
other: foam tape

Beautiful thank you card (would be a great birthday card, too--wink wink) I love how those stitched mats look when they are layered like you have them. And, that peony is so pretty and can really stand on its own.

Another beautiful card. Love this stamp set. The stitching adds so much to the card, but doesn't take away from the image. I'm going to have to go check out these dies now..thanks ;). Glad you joined us this week at Dynamic Duos.

So tell the truth, the first time you used the dies, did you clap your hands, squeal, or otherwise outwardly show affection that non-card makers would think a little odd? I've been known to clap before. I know. Even card-makers would think that odd : )

Such a pretty card, as usual, Tracey. That Peonies set is such a classic. Lovely!
