A Peony for Fred She Said

I always think peonies are very exotic flowers - so blowsy and exuberant, so I think the colour scheme I have chosen for this card really suits this bright orange bloom.

My papers are some I have had forever,  K & Co, Que Sera, which actually conjures up exotic climes of the Caribbean or some such other place.  I have lightly stippled Dried Marigold distress ink around the image.  Dies are Spellbinders and Cheery Lynn, and the centre border (paper ribbon) is a Martha Stewart punch.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:

Bearly-Mine - Flowers (FSS is sponsoring this challenge and there is a fabulous prize of a $20 voucher to spend in store.)
Creatalicious Monthly - Anything goes
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Love to Create - Summertime fun
Paper Pretties - Summer inspiration
Papertake Weekly - BINGO board - I've chosen gems, free (paper lace) and blooms
Raise the Bar - Summer
Deep Ocean - Welcome summer

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
