Hello friends, hope you are enjoying the weekend.  Sun is shining here and temps are in the 50's!
Highly unusual for Western New York State!  

I made this card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
I bought this set of Altenew flowers and the matching die cuts
and have only used them once before.  After stamping out the flowers
in a three step process, I went to die cut them and could not find
where I had put the dies.  So frustrating, never did find where they
are hiding, so fussy cut the flowers out.......ugh...

The inside

Stamps - Altenew - Peony Bouquet
Both Sentiment Stamps are Inkadinado
Ivy Die - Sue Wilson-Creative Expressions
Chicken Wire embossing folder - Cuttlebug
Inks  Ranger Distress Inks - Scattered Straw and
Wild Honey
Gold Embossing Powder
Card is 5x7 inches

Made this card for a dear friend who is recovering nicely from
recent surgery.  Flowers always make me feel better!

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later......

A gorgeous card Sue, beautiful roses - how frustrating not being able to find your dies, they will probably turn up now you have finished your card. I'm sure your friend will love her card.

Beautiful cards with these flowers. I hope that you find the dies!!

Hi Sue, this is such a beautiful mix of stamp, embossing folder and die cut use! The wild honey is such beautiful color you've chosen for the peony! Very cheerful.

I can relax to the misplacement of my dies. I now adhere the magnetic sheet to the back of my coordinating stamp set. I really like this organization setup.

Have a lovely evening Sue. Take care.
