With the strange weather we have had in April and now again in May, I am happy to report that my Peonies aren't far from opening up! I do have one that is open now, which totally inspired the card, which is headed to a family in which recently lost their father.

I used the XL Flower punch, new style, and tissue paper. The issue paper flower is secured with a brad, then was crumbled up. I attached it with pop up glue dots on the rear, after using the 2 step bird "branch". I love the turn out. What you cannot see is I dusted the peony with some glitter, for more effect. I used the Sketch challenge on StampinUpConnection.

I love the outcome! Thanks for looking! Come back again!

How many layers did you cut? How do you keep the layers fluffy? Thanks,
