Happy Birthday




Good morning! Today I made a card featuring the newly released Peonies On Parade by Papertrey Ink. I Love this set. Peonies also happen to be one of my favorite flowers so needless to say I had to have it.
 
I created this card using Betsy's Ombre Stenciled Backgrounds Technique  over at PTI's MIM Challenge where she is hosting this week. I used the Chevron Pattern Stencil by Simon Says Stamp and distress inks for my background. A die cut and stamped sprig was also added to the bouquet which sits in the quart jar also by PTI. The sentiment is a die cut by Cas-ual Fridays that was included in the latest SOA Collection by Catherine Pooler called Young At Heart. I added Wink of Stella and several white dots to the petals as a finishing touch. 
 
Hoping you all have a wonderful day!

  1. LOVE your stenciled background Rema! Your blending is flawless, and a perfect backdrop for those beautiful Peonies! Really like that clear quart jar too...for some reason I thought it was going to be smaller, so didn't order it...think I need to add it to my shopping cart! But anyway, lovely, lovely card!! :0)
