Peaches and Green

The challenge this week at Joan's Gardens is peach, cream and white card with "stacked up" flower, a fancy corner and a heart.  I have no large fancy corners (beautiful small ones though), and so I cut a corner shape out of the beautiful Sophia's Heart die by Cherry Lynn (DL184)  I I used the heart from the center of this Doily Die for the heart this time, and bunrished those white pieces with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, "mowed lawn" .  The pearl flourishes are by recollections and the Happy Birthday sentiment is a Starform text sticker.  The peach colored paper backing is embossed and then flattened after embossing with crafts-too's Swirl Christmas Tree. (The swirls match the swirls in Sophia's Heart doily).
The stacked up flower is made with Punch Bunch's petals for building a flower and the center is a punch black stamen with white beaded stamens, and little peach colored roses from I Am  


  1. Your card is beautiful, Priss! The Sophia's Heart die is gorgeous and you very cleverly used it to design your card. And I love your flower. I know what you mean by saying a challenge sometimes gives nothing but trouble....those REALLY ARE challenges and the thinking cap needs to be put on and the night oil needs to burn. LOL I think you did a wonderful job on your card!

    (PS: and thanks so much for your kind remarks on my challenge card)

  2. Priss, I really struggled with this challenge. As always, you came up with a beautiful design. Good job!

  3. Very beautiful detailed card. Especially love the heart

  4. I love your creative fancy corner. Your layered flower is too die for!
