happy Birthday to you! 12

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, September 7, 2016 @ 11:48 PM | , ,

Hi there! Today I have a couple of projects to share featuring peonies. First up is a birthday card that I made for my dear MIL who will be celebrating her birthday this Saturday, September 10th. I used her favorite two colors pink and green.
I inked up the pretty peony image from PTI's Pretty Peonies stamp set:
For card sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current retrosketches sketch challenge. While typing this post, I realized I completely forgot to glue on the sequins! LOL Oh well, at least the card should arrive in her Louisiana mailbox by Saturday :)
Up next is my painting for Day 6 of 30 in 30:
I was in the mood to paint some abstract flowers so I painted this 8" x 10" canvas featuring a few silk peonies in a blue glass jar:

Here's my source of inspiration:
I'm linking my painting to the current Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Your card and painting are so pretty. Peonies are one of my favorite flowers. They are just so full and luscious and can be intensely colored. You've really captured their essence. Have a great weekend.
