Birthday Peonies



I'm on a birthday card roll this month with so many family and friends celebrating their 'born days' in April!  This card was created for the following challenges...
The Paper Players - color challenge (Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Mossy Meadow, Soft Sky)
Seize the Birthday - toppings week: florals

I added a watercolor wash BG to the tilted, stitched rectangle using Tumbled Glass distress ink.  I had this striped paper on my desk from a previous project, so included it in the border.

STAMPS: Pretty Little Peonies and Whole Lotta Happy by WPlus9.
INK: Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Always Artichoke.
DIES: Happy Trio and Pretty Little Peonies by WPlus9.
