Delightful Peony by Memory Box

Happy Wednesday, everyone! It's Karen here with my card for the new Anything Goes challenge that begins today at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! For a chance to win a generous gift certificate, be sure to use products (primarily the stamped image) carried by the 7 Kids Store! :o)

Although the challenge is Anything Goes for participants, the Design Team added a twist for our inspiration! We are showcasing some of our favorite products from January's Winter CHA. How fun!

One product that stood out to me is this gorgeous flower die from Memory Box:
It is large and beautiful! I cut out the Delightful Peony Background with white paper and inked it up with varying shades of Tim Holtz Distress Ink to make it warm and sunshiny. The Delightful Peony Outline was cut out in a soft green, as white was a little too glaring for this card's color palette.

I layered my flower on one of my favorite combination of Spellbinders dies: Labels 18 and Floral Ovals. One is embossed with nature's beauty, while the other is accented with rhinestones. This truly is one of the most lovely flower dies I've used and I'm anxious to use it again soon. (Maybe with pretty pink inks?!) Although tonal and a little difficult to see, the corner decoration beneath the butterfly is a Marianne Design Petra's Corners die.

You have two weeks to play along with us, so link up your inspiring creations at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog! We look forward to seeing your work. :o) Have a blessed day!
