Flower frenzy

Here we are again ( I think I might be getting the hang of this blogging lark now ( THANKS JACQUELINE FOR YOUR PROMPTING AND HELP! )) I've just finished watering my mum's garden as she is sunning herself in Spain with my stepdad, and although we've had some rain lately the plants and pots are still bone dry. I'll be quick today as the Grand Prix proper is about to start and I need to get coffee and craft stuff etc. ready to sit in front of the TV.
My next card is all about my favourite flowers,peonies,and it is going in simply stampin challenge floral frenzy.Let me know what you think? usual they are brightly coloured!!

I used my new Blossom Petals punch to make the petals from cardstock (of SU Pretty in Pink,YoYo Yellow,Orchid Opulence,Bravo Burgandy,and the green from my stash) and each one was sponged with the same colour ink to give the petals more definition, and then they were curled with a boning tool before being stuck down.The sentiment is from Whimsical words set. Here is a side view to show the curling petals.

I hope you have a great bank holiday tomorrow,I cant wait to see what the next weeks challenges are going to be. Thanks for stopping by. I'll blog again soon. Bev.x
