Lovely Peony Blog Hop




For our October Blog Hop, we are celebrating World Card Making Day which is October 6th.  Each of the Design Team is making a card and matching envelope using Lovely Peony.

To make a vintage look, I've used a piece of lace behind the image, pearl accents on the top and bottom of the card, and an organdy ribbon. 



The Lovely Peony stamp was cut out with a SU Framlets Labels Collection and then holes were punched using the Festive Paper Piercing Pack.  The flower is colored with Copic Markers (RV10,RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29, YG11, YG13, YG17, YR23, YR24, Y06, Y38, C0, W4)Other supplies are green cardstock, cream cardstock, and Bazzill  Juneberry cardstock.




Be sure to check out all the Design Team cards for this blog hop. Leave a comment on the blogs.  One mystery blog will have a name drawn from the comments for a prize.  It could be you, so be sure to visit them all and leave some feedback.
