Wishing Peony Card

Greetings!  I'm back in my craft room today.  Took a few days off to do some cleaning and sorting....a 'thing' that happens to me every spring.  I just needed to purge and declutter.  So, now it's back to creating.

Lately I've been loving the grays and eggplant color combination....
This lovely stamp image is from Stampendous (P062 Peony).  The wishing die is Simon Says Stamp, and the birthday phrase is from Simon Says Stamp clear set SSS101475 Sending & Wishing.

I lightly stamped the image using light gray ink onto a light gray panel.  I colored the image with Faber Castell Polychromos colored pencils, using four different grays, and the white for highlights.  Around the image I used an eggplant color from my chalk pastels.  I shaved a little onto some scrap paper, then rubbed it onto my card around the flower using a makeup applicator.  You can see another card and more detail on how to do this HERE .

This card is for the following challenges:

Allsorts Challenge - Happy Birthday - in honor of their 7th birthday.

Hope you get a chance to stop by these challenges to check out the cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
