 Peonies are one of my favorite flowers.  Today I created this card using Susan's Garden Notes Peony dies.  For the Oval frame, I used Els van de Burgt's Oval Stitched and Fitted Frames.  Behind the Oval Frame I attached Karen Burniston's Pop It Ups Chicken Wire die cut.

The Garden Notes Peonies were die cut using white card stock.  The edges of the petals were lightly sponged with Spun Sugar and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks.  Behind the flowers are a few Elizabeth Craft Designs Leafy Branch.

One of Els Corners 1 dies was used to die cut the pink corners.  Butterflies love Peonies so I added one ECD Small Butterfly die cuts.  Both pieces of the butterfly were die cut using white card stock then the body was colored shading with Copic T3 and W00 markers.  The little dots in the center of each Chicken Wire opening  were the discards from the Corners 1 die cuts.

The products used from Elizabeth Craft Designs include:

996 - Garden Notes Peony
1033 - Leafy Branch
1113 - Stitched Ovals
1114 - Fitted Ovals
1124 - Corners 1 
1072 - Small Butterfly
PSF 101 - Soft Finish Cardstock
