Hello Crafty Friends,

I am having a great weekend.  I am attending a crafty retreat and I am getting a lot done.  It always is a good feeling when you are productive. 

Today I want to share a very simple card with you.

To get the white color on the blooms, I used the Whip Cream Color Burst Pencil, lightly over the stamped image.  I like the soft hue it put on the blooms.

Stamp: Peony Blooms, Embroidered Greetings
Paper: Lavender Fusion Cardstock, Grape Fusion Cardstock, Whip Cream Cardstock
Ink: Black Licorice
Colored with Journey Color Burst Pencils
