This is the second sneak peek sample that I created using Clear Dollar Stamps' "Peony" stamp set. This set is a must have and it is only $7.99 for the whole set! You can purchase it here at Clear Dollar Stamps. Since I created such a warm hued peony card on the other sample, I wanted to do something "cool" hued -- and I had this luscious designer paper from the Paper Company that has a fantastic shimmer to it, IRL. My camera did not pick up that quality very well, but it's gorgeous paper, just the same. The peony was stamped, colored and cut out for the paper tole effect again and the card was embellished with a shower of scallops! Here's the deets:

BOTH your cards are so beautiful! I can't decide which I like more, so go ahead & send them both to me. Bwahahahahaha! My dishes are called "Blue Peony" and perhaps I will get to use them soon.

I like the saying by Lady Bird. She did love her flowers. I wish I could take you on a tour of Central Texas during wildflower season, especially when the Bluebonnets are out. They are amazing & a beautiful reflection of our Creator's work.

Oh Linda both of these cards are gorgeous. I love the orange one -- almost looks like a poppy! The layout of that card is incredible.
