Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  I still have a few new stamp sets from the new catalog that have not seen any ink, so I have to fix that problem and ink up a new set for our hop.  Prized Peony was anxiously awaiting some ink, and what fun it was to create using all the products.  The whole suite from the Peony Garden is exquisite from the paper to the gems,  I know you will make some beautiful cards using this suite of products.

The sketch:
