Pure Florals - Peony

Afternoon folks.
I'm back again to share a card for this fortnight's Seize the Birthday challenge.

This week our topping is -


However, if you are not a topping sort of person, you can still join us so long as its a birthday card.

I started by heat embossing in white this fab Uniko peony bloom on a panel of black card. I then stamped another in black on white and trimmed all the leaves away to leave just the bloom. 
Using a MFT scalloped rectangle I cut the black panel and attached it to a white base card, then added the peony bloom with foam pads. My sentiment strip was also added with pads and a few transparent sequins were added to complete.
Check out the DT here for more black and white birthday inspiration.
