PEONY IN GREEN

The Ellen Hutson Pinsights this month contains wonderful images in greens for inspiration.  Since a friend asked me to make a wedding card for May (emerald is the gem for May), I combined the two.



I stamped the EH peony in black and clear embossed; colored with Zigs (pale green and light green) and a damp brush; covered with Spectrum Noir.  Popped up the flower with foam tape and added the sentiment - also stamped in black and clear embossed.  Added  some Nuvo crystal dots in silver, stamped "best wishes" inside and chomped the corner.

The photo in the center second from the bottom was my inspiration for colors and lots of white space - also the silver in the spoon and the scripty writing.


Thanks for stopping by today and always love to read your kind comments.
