Peonies

Just popping in really quick before I head out to work to share this Peony card I made with the new Justrite garden oval stampers. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers, I used to have tons of them growing in front of my old house. Sadly, the only gardening I do anymore is container gardening on our front and back decks, the deer chomp up any and everything else planted in the yard.
I thought this would be perfect for a Mother's birthday card, or Mother's Day of course. But I intentionally left off any reference to the holiday so it could be used as a birthday card. My mom's birthday is in May too, and I don't want to be left unprepared in case I get distracted and don't make another card specifically for her.
I love this Martha Stewart Lattice punch around the page set. So delicate and pretty!

Hope you like it, come back soon!
