Prized Peony for AAA 168 and Festive Friday 62

Happy Saturday! 

I have a card featuring my favorite Stampin' Up! set - Prized Peony.  There is something about this set that just works for me.  I feel a little like Goldilocks... the flower isn't too big (like Good Morning Magnolia - although I love it) and it isn't too small.  It's just right :-)  For today's card I was inspired by the challenges across at Festive Friday and AAA cards

I chose CAS design, single image and floral theme.

I began by stamping the image off the bottom left corner of a piece of Neenah Solar White 80# paper.  I colored the image and the background with copic markers and then stamped the sentiment.  I placed this layer onto a 110# Neenah card base.  Quick and simple coloring made this an easy card to put together.

Before I leave you today, I wanted to share a photo from the feeder.   We love that we get to see the Baltimore Oriole's nest and feed their young over summer her.  But it is even more rewarding when we get to watch the fledglings fending for themselves.

I'll be back tomorrow with my Paper Player's card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift today.
