Good morning!

And another gorgeous release from Heartfelt Creations!
Sweetly fragranced, and delicately airy, the graceful peony flower is a breathtaking and dreamy blossom that calls a quiet attention to itself! Lush foliage filled plants bursting forth with tightly wound flower buds among softly ruffled blossoms bring with them a hint of old fashioned romance and delight! Join Heartfelt Creations as we stroll through beautiful peony filled gardens in the new Sweet Peony Collection! Pause, linger and refresh your soul as you amble through a paper collection filled with delightful peony flowers in happy hues of angelic pinks and dark burgundies, set among a refreshing array of leafy greens, sky blues, and sunshine yellows! Soft swirls, gorgeous stripes, and dainty lace like accents come together to create pleasing backdrops for bold peony blossoms, chipping birds and divine window scenes! Three coordinating cling stamp set and die combinations bring the luscious peony flower to the forefront of this gorgeous collection. An assortment of varying sized peony petals and foliage die cut pieces work together to create dimensional and dynamic peony blossoms ready to captivate and take center stage on card fronts, scrapbook layouts and altered art pieces!

Thanks for visiting today!!

Psalm 139:1-4
Lord, you have examined my heart
    and know everything about me.
You know when I sit down or stand up.
    You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.
You see me when I travel
    and when I rest at home.
    You know everything I do.
You know what I am going to say
    even before I say it, Lord.
This makes me want to open my heart wide before the Lord and allow Him to cut away ANYTHING that does not please Him...because, what will matter at the end?  Only those things that bring honor to Him.

Robin, I had to stop by for more details after seeing this splendid creation on SCS. Seeing the fully open card makes me aware of just how marvelous the card is, and all the gorgeous details. HFC is so blessed to have you as a designer, as you make all their products look remarkable, and you are such an inspiration to me!! Hugs!
