For this card, I started by stamping the background using Heidi Swapp's woodgrain background stamp. I used Distress Ink to stamp it on plain white paper, and then I used several different brown shades to add some color to it. The peonies were stamped using Avery Elle's peony stamp set. I stamped them on watercolor paper and used my Distress Inks and watercolor brush to color them in. Then, I used the coordinating dies with my sizzix to cut them out.
The black lacy detail behind the sentiment is a rub on that Ive been hoarding for a while. I then added a paper doily over that, and arranged the flowers and adhered them down. I found just the right letters I needed to spell "thanks" from a pack of chipboard letters that I bought several years ago. After I had them measured out to where I wanted them, I used some of the sentiment stamps from the Peony stamp set to spell out "you so much" and heat embossed it in white. To finish, I added a bit of twine, and a strip of green patterned paper on the bottom.
