This is my third card in the Peony Garden Suite by Stampin Up® series. I’ve had so much fun working with all the elements in this suite. The Prized Peony Bundle is amazing with the Distinktive stamp set and Peony Dies.
   This time I added the Band Together and Dandelion Wishes Stamps sets and the Layering Oval and Layering Circle Dies. 

 It’s always good to combine different stamps sets and dies so that we get into the habit of using them with each other. 
     I don’t know about you but I sometimes get into a bad habit of only using stamp sets and dies that come as a bundle.  This card is a perfect example of how well they all can work together.
