Pretty Peony #2

I got around to making a card with my Altenew technique piece

I started with this... but felt it didn't really pop. So I embossed the outline

Made quite a difference I think.   I had this on my one layer card but messed up the sentiment.  So just trimmed the peony out. 

I stamped the leaves around where I was going to pop the flower.  I stamped them directly to the card in Verafine Onyx Black.  I decided to leave them uncoloured to allow the flower to be the focal point.   The sentiment is from the SOA Lovely Notes Collection from StampNation.  Die cut with a Lil' Inkers die and added to some Bazzil card.  Some Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins to finish.

Loved how these turned out.  So much so, that I have ordered some more Pixie Powders in some other colours. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope this has inspired you to get your craft on!

Love how this card ended up, Dawn! The embossed outline & the flower popped over the uncolored leaves--perfect!
