Peony Wreath - Flourishes

I really wanted to use my new peony wreath stamp this week and I found 2 challenges I could use it for! First is the Color Throwdown CTD185 and the second is Deconstructingjen 45 for the layout.

I colored my Flourishes wreath with Copics, cut it out and layered it with some Spellbinder die cuts.  Keeping gray in the color scheme wasn't easy even though I love gray.  I highlighted the wreath with gray, stamped the sentiment in gray and matted the largest layer with gray.
It is a tent style card that measures 5 x 6 3/8.
