Yellow & Gray Pretty Peonies

I'm having one of those weeks where I'm constantly playing catch up!  I was working on this card for a Play Date Cafe challenge and I only missed it by two days, lol!  The kids activities are in full Spring swing, so my crafting time and mojo have suffered.  But I am happy that I was able to finish this one! 
For this card, I used the new PTI anniversary set Pretty Peonies.  I tried to mix it up a bit with a different shaped panel (stub corners and no space at the top and bottom) and a popped up sentiment label.  I'm just happy I finally got it finished:)  
Thanks for visiting and hope everyone has a great Friday! 

{Aloha, jj} 

Stamps: Pretty Peonies (PTI)

  1. This is really pretty. I like how you used patterned paper for those peonies. I sat down today to try to make a card for this challenge, too, only to realize that I missed it. I'm glad you stuck with it. Your card is so pretty.

  2. I love the symmetrical design JJ and those peonies are so pretty stamped on patterned paper :0)
    Looks like your mojo hadn't gone far :0)

  3. The top panel is awesome - love the corners and that it runs the length of the card. And the flowers look gorgeous in chevron yellow - gives them just the right amount of texture! :)

  4. OH so pretty! I love the peonies and the fancy frames behind them! The yellow and grey together are stunning! Just perfect!! I think you are turning over to the dark side here JJ - I see layers and pop dots!!

  5. Spring break is on here, and I feel the same way...running along afterwards, being dragged by crazy kids, while laundry & dog are tagging along behind me! lol
    Glad that you got some time to create - I know it always makes me feel more rested & calm, even if I give up some sleep to do it!

  6. Oh what a shame you missed this weeks pdcc as this is an elegant beauty! Love those beautiful peonies, and they look fab stamped on the yellow chevron pattern. A gorgeous creation!

  7. gorgeous, yellow and gray is a combo i cannot get enough of!

  8. Love your colors and how you have framed it. Dawn mentioned how beautiful it is on the Papertrey forum. Great card!
