Clean and simple card and flowers

 Hope you are having a great Sunday.  Made this simple card after seeing the challenge at Sentimental Sunday: Clean and Simple. The background was made using Glimmer mists and a Tim Holtz mask some time ago. I cut it down to size and stamped the Stampendours sentiment and the Tim Holtz butterflies directly onto it. The faux stitching was added next. With the cost of postage being so high it's good to have some cards are are light and flat.
We did a bit of gardening today (put the chip bark down) and I wanted to share the flowers on my tree Peony with you. They are so big and beautiful but they don't last very long. 
Have a great week and thanks for the visit.
