Good Morning Crafty Friends,

Happy Monday to you all and hope you all had a good weekend.

WOW what a busy weekend I have had, videoing, editing and uploading 5 videos. I still have another 5 to do before I go on holiday too!

I had a good chill on Saturday in the garden as well on Sunday for just a couple of hours.
I hope the sun was shining where you were.

Today sharing a card that I made for the IndigoBlu shows last Friday.
I love peonies and this stamp set is gorgeous. I also used the Collectors Edition bumblebee.

Step by Step

1. 8 inch scalloped circle base card.
2. Matted and layered gold and navy pearlescent card.
3. Onto stamping card I stamped the peony with Versamark and embossed with navy blue embossing powder then coloured with Luscious powders cherry lips.
4. I masked the peony and stamped the leaves embossed with gold embossing powder and painted with Acrylic paint ugly duckling.
5. To finish off stamped the bees and coloured with gold luscious powders.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
