Hand Made Peony

This week at Just Rite Stampers the challenge is to incorporate handmade flowers into your project.  I'd gotten some new McGill punches that I couldn't wait to try out and this was the perfect challenge for me.  I took on the peony and though it took some time...Man was it worth it!!!! I love the finished flowers, just stunning.  The paper I used for this piece is the new Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden and I picked it up at Beary Scrap.  The sketch I used for this card is from Card Sketches.  I ended up giving this to my sister EE as we celebrated her birthday this weekend...I laughed when she asked if I actually won anything from the challenge did she get it...you have to understand I had just handed her a big bag of punches where she could make her own flowers...Silly girl!!!!

 I love the new Just Rite stamps...they are so detailed and they coordinate with Spellbinders so you know that wins my heart :)

See you soon and have a great week!!
