Peony Garden stencilled background

Another post today!  I am making cards left right and center today it seems.  This one is for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge for STAMPtember make your own background.
Another goodie that I ordered from SSS is the newish Memory Box Peony Garden stencil.  Brand new and I am also entering into Darnell's NBUS #2
So happy for all of these wonderful challenges!
 I made my background by spongeing on 3 colours, SU Pistachio Pudding, PTI Melonberry and Staz On Dove Grey.  I layered onto a Smokey Slate Card front and used Smokey Slate ink for the PTI sentiment.  The ampersand was cut twice, once in Smokey Slate and once in SU silver card stock.  I layered together, slightly offset and that is this simple wedding card. 
Thanks again for your visits,


  1. This is really beautiful, Chriss! It reminds me of that pretty patterned vellum paper that I used the other day. Is it on vellum paper? I see the excellent sponging, but it's also then overembossed in white for those great blooms? Wow, it's awesome and so perfect for a wedding/anniversary card. The offset hamster stand is a perfect touch, too!!

    Thank you so much for your third entry into my NBUS Challenge! I really appreciate your support! You are welcome to keep on entering if you like. Your name can only go in the hopper three times for a prize, but that doesn't mean you can't keep on linking that NBUS if you want!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Wow! Your background turned out so pretty! Love the Mr and Mrs too! Beautiful work!
