Freshly Made Sketches #378

I spent a little time coloring with my favorite stamp set of the moment, Budding Peony.  I changed things up a little and went with purple as my color scheme.  I figured you had seen enough of my pinks and mint!  My card is based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches-

My card ended up taking a direction of it's own.  I promise that rectangle strip is under my peonies!  I had planned on using the strip more as a flower box. It still serves the purpose, my flowers just happen to be in full bloom over the top of it! I layered the flowers to give added dimension.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
D1831 Budding Peony
X6024 Thistle Cardstock
X6027 White Daisy Cardstock
