At first glance the dies can be a little intimidating but once you use them they will amaze you! So easy to fit together to form this beautiful flower!  I used the entire Peony Garden Suite to design and make this card.  

Stampin Up® has out done themselves with the design for this flower.  The color combo’s blend so well together.  Hope it give you some inspiration to create a bunch of cards!
