Peony

Yep another sketch :)  page 50.

K&co. designer paper.  The cardstock strip in the middle was embossed using the Quickutz Vines folder.
The flower is the Spellbinder Peony, to give it a little bit of dimension I cut between the petals and did some shaping with my stylus. 

Sentiment is from the Fiskar Cameo Ovations stamp set.  I thought it kind of looked like a leaft shape so I stamped it in the middle to go beside the flower, after I had taken the pictures I thought I should have stamped it onto a seperate piece and it would have given it more dimension.


On the flower I used Cosmo cricket and mulberry papers, topped it off with a clear gemstone.
Here is a close up of the flower to see how I cut the petals. I also used the 3 smallest sizes of the dies on the flower.



Update on my progress with my quilt, I have close to half of it cut out, Yea!!!  Then I can get to the fun part of putting it all together, that is my favorite part of quilting is the piecing of it together.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and hope your enjoying a beautiful sunny day :)
