Two Tweet Birdies and Two Pink Peonies

This is another lovely slimline card – these things are super popular in Europe! I follow a blog from Poland, and I think these are practically the only size they post!!

The background papers are a mix from Little Birdie Crafts “Birds and Blooms” and Heartfelt Creations Butterfly Medly. The wee birdhouse came from Heartfelt Creations Climbing Clematis collection. The white doily is a HFC die, and the flowers are medium size clematis, and small peony. Leaves again are a mishmash! Sentiment is from Creative Expressions, and I suppose I should’ve selected white, instead of gold, but I do so love glitter and shine.

Have to admit, I messed up on this, I always seem to “have “ to add a ribbon/bow, but in the image here, you can’t see the cute paper I (so carefully selected, lol) inside of the doily!!

Below you can see a closeup of my flowers – I really love making my own flowers, there are so many varieties, and you can have such a different look, using the same ink, depending on how much ink you use, and if you add a crystal lacquer. Such fun!

The sentiment is another from Creative Expressions: So Glad We’re Friends – and that really is a nice sentiment, isn’t it?!

Below is a card using more of the pink peonies – really large ones, combined with a “newish” octagonal die from Heartfelt Creations. It was really rather simple to put together, but is just so elegant! (Less really is sometimes more, isn’t it!)

I used Momento Vibrant Fuschia for the ink on these flowers, and the die cut overlay is from a glossy/metallic paper I found at a local craft shop.
Here is the inside! I stamped, colored & die cut the rose image, and the message is from Creative Expressions, using the same glossy/metallic paper I used for the overlay on the front.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
