…that take time to count up past mercies

Sharing another card featuring a new stamp, Pretty Peonies Background, from Simon Says Stamp!.

Over at C.R.A.F.T. Challenge they want to see thank you cards.  Luckily I needed a few so I could play along with this pretty floral one.  The thank you sentiment on it is from Uniquely Creative and their All Occasions stamp set.

My colour palette comes from Color Throwdown.  I picked up the orange in my flowers, including the resin embellie one.  The blue is in the background to my watercolour panel and one layer of my mats.  Finally, the grey comes in my mats and also in my embossing powder.

The layout is from the current sketch at The Paper Players.  I decided to set the middle panel into the background and added the plain mats over the top, popping them up on foam tape.  Love the depth and way it frames the pretty flowers.  I was going to keep this super CAS but ended up adding the resin flower embellie as the sentiment panel looked a bit bare.  I’ve had these resin flowers in my stash since the dawn of crafting so it was good to finally use one.  A touch of alcohol ink ensured it was the perfect colour for my card and I think it matches the stamped peonies beautifully.
