Another Christmas Card

This is a card I also made this week for Christmas. It is done with mostly dies and I just love the design of it. I know I will be doing more similar to this one for sure.

I just love that background paper I used for a backing for the wreath design and other dies. The pattern paper is from Gina K. Designs. And all the dies are from Cheery Lynn Designs except for the little bird embellishment which is from David Tutera.

The little bird was part of a prize package and this was the first time I have used anything from that little package of birds. There are several more in it so I am sure I will be incorporating a bird in more cards. I thought he looked so cute perched on the wreath.

The colors used on this card are card stocks in the color of Christmas Pine, Cranberry Tart and Ivory and all are from the Gina K. Designs line.

Cheery Lynn Designs Dies used:
Joy To The World Wreath B481
Lace Corner Deco A B161

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Cheery Lynn Designs Blog Challenge
Scrapy Land Challenge
Dies R Us Challenge

Thanks for looking at my newest Christmas card. I enjoyed making it.

But today I also took the walker and went out into the yard to get some photos of my peonies while they still looked fairly nice. I am sharing a few photos with  you and if you have a peony image you need to color you can check out these. Seeing the colors might be useful to you. I only have the deep red and the pink ones. But I know they come in white as well.

I hope you enjoyed my little post today and that the flowers will brighten your day too! 

God bless,

Your peonies are just beautiful. Mine are still in the bud, but I counted over 30! I have only the one plant by the back door, so I see it every time I leave the house. As much as I don't want to think about Christmas right now, your card is beautiful. LOVE that you used so many dies. Well done!!
