Monday Monday Burning Bright......

Happy Monday,

I'm hoping that we are all having bright weather today however I get the feeling it wont be as its getting too close to winter!  Therefore I thought I´d show something bright that would remind us all of Summer today!

What better then than a pink peony?!?

This flower is the final one I made in the craft class I attended with Wendy in the summer.  I have worked it into a card several times before I was happy with the result.  The backing paper is First Edition Floral Pavilion fabric paper and I love the turquoise and pink which lifts the flower whilst not making it stand out Too Much!

I have, since attending the class, bought this die which is a Sizzix die although I haven't cut / assembled any yet.  I get the feeling this may not get fully used until the spring!

For today enjoy memories of summer!

  1. Brilliant card John,
    Loving the thought of "summer" the papers you have used are beautiful.
    The "flower" ..... well what can I say ....... it is stunning. I have some if these Sizzix Dies although I like them I always go back to my SB Blossom Five.
    Have a great day
