Floral Punch Craft - Peony

I've fell in love with this flower, it was made by using an apple punch to create the petals then some pinching and shaping before putting them together, the leaves are made with the grape leaf punch and scoring the veins.

I embossed the base card using the Oval Nestabilities and then cut some in contrasting colours to mat and layer, using the swiss dots A2 folder by Cuttlebug I embossed the bottom of the card then stamped a sentiment by Papertrey Ink and finished by tying a matching ribbon and adding a bow

A closer look at the Peony

Beautiful Jak. Nestabilities and the polka dot embossing folder are two of my favourites. They are so versatile.

Jak you just keep on making more and more super cards. I can't think of a superlative that fits the description. This is totally gorgeous and you have such patience and skill to put these together.
Thank you for the comment you left on my blog. I can only marvel at your expertise given the difficulties you must experience.
Deep respect as my kids would say.:)
