Keeping it simple...
A simple to make card today that looks like it took a lot longer!
I started by making a pixie powder background onto watercolour card using midnight blue, teal wash and peacock. Once dry I cut this down to an A5 size and embossed t with the Rose Blooms pinpoint embossing folder which added the additional texture and the roses. To bring the embossing to the front i rubbed over the surface with the Cosmic Shimmer metallic gilding polish in Pearl Lustre. I then cut a panel for the front of this card using the number 2 die in the Australian background die.
I stamped the peony from my Peony elements clear stamp set adding one of the sentiments from the set as well. I coloured the flower with my Alcohol pens and cut this out leaving a strip with the sentiment. I mounted this with more of the blue and simply added this across the front.
Although it may not look it its a simple card to pull together Honest lol
