A Spring Peony

Southern Arizona is not known for the winter weather that the northern half of the United States gets.  We used to live in northwest Wyoming and boy, could we get snow, wind, and freezing temperatures!!  But we also enjoyed skiing in Red Lodge, MT so we didn't mind the snow quite so much at times.  But I was checking out Operation Write Home yesterday and they were having a Midweek Throwdown Challenge  of spring flowers.  Hmmm..... yeah, a bit of spring color would be nice so I came up with this....


This peony and text is from a The Angel Co. set called Dotted Peony.  The paper is also from TAC (and it's almost all gone). I colored the peony with Copic markers.


You can see in this pic that I pierced the green chevron for a bit more embellishment. I seen this sketch design recently as I was blurfing (blog surfing) and used it for this card.  Well, now that you have enjoyed my touch of spring check out OWH (click on their name above to go to their site) and check out more spring flower!

A beautiful image and a beautiful scripture to go along with it! It gave me a thought I like--the glory of God is contained in a rose. It's beautiful! I hope you have a chance to come and join us this week at Inkspirational and this month at Technique Tuesday! We've got prizes, a giveaway, and a DT call!!! :)

Hi Carol, Your card is lovely, I love the peony and your layout is perfect for it.

I enjoyed reading your post too. I'm in Arizona too and I know you know that. My grandparents lived in Cody WYO and I've been to Red Lodge MT lots of times too. Funny how lives parallel.

Have a good weekend!

Thanks for playing in our Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge this week!
