Holly's Peacock Peony

Hi folks, it's Holly posting today!

Have you played in the Mother's Day challenge yet?  This is the card I created for the challenge, and I kinda hate to give this one away. That flower is just so pretty!  But I know my mom will enjoy this card, and she totally deserves to have a pretty card for her special day.

I started this card by smooshing some Peacock Feathers Distress Stain and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Stain onto a nonstick craft mat.  I spritzed it with water, and then dragged some white cardstock through the stains.  After this dried, I used it with the Lovely Peony Background die for my flower background.  I cut out some black cardstock with the Lovely Peony Outline die, and then glued this black outline to the blue flower with a Quickie Glue Pen. Some Baby White Pearls were affixed to the center of the flower and then I set this aside while I assembled the card.

I stamped the Wooden Plank Cover a Card background (Impression Obsession) using the Mega Mount Tool with Versamark onto some Kraft cardstock.  I wanted a more distressed, weather beaten look to my background, so I smooshed the Versamark inkpad all over the stamped Kraft cardstock background.

Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Hugs and Kisses Sentiments, (JustRite), with black ink at the bottom.

I cut a strip of the plaid paper from the Vintage Bliss 6x6 paper pad and glued it at a diagonal onto my wood background and then I tied some Chalk White Seam Binding around it.  The flower was affixed to the card with some Large Joy Foam Pads and then I glued this onto a pink card base.

This turned out to be a fun, happy, and sweet Mother's Day card.  I can't wait to see the look on my mom's face when she sees this card. I hope you play along in the challenge!

Your card is so unique and pretty! Thanks Holly!
