Serendipity Stamps - APRIL Blog Hop!



Welcome to the Serendipity Stamps April Blog Hop!!  I hope you have enjoyed seeing the new products on the HOP!  I made a Peony card with the darling new stamp shown on the banner above.

You should have arrived here from:
Marybeth Lopez

  
I made a unique folding card for the HOP.  The flap with the Peony on it opens up and the flap at the bottom opens down to reveal the message on the inside of the card.



Just something different for a change! 
I embossed the pink background paper with an embossing folder for texture.



I have 2 peony shrubs in my garden and wish I could grow more.  Here in Atlanta it gets too hot too fast for the blooms to survive very long.  So, almost as soon as they open, the petals start falling off.  A professional told me to get the Festiva Maxima variety for the best result.  It is white with a streak of magenta in the center.  I can wait till the blooms open!


Here is a picture from last May.  You can barely see the magenta streaks.

I am the last blog on the list. 
 Here is the whole list in case you need it:

I love this clever shaped card Miriam and the Peony is beautifully coloured. Here in the UK Peonies only tend to last about three weeks, but they are a joy to see if only for a short time. x
