Purple Peony

Hello lovely bloggers!  Hope you're all well.
Today I have a card for the challenge over at Less Is More.  Chrissie and Mandi have challenged us to make a card using the colour 'Purple'.  For my card I chose a digi stamp of a peony, (which is my favourite flower), I used PM's to colour. The image is from Just Inklined.  I wasn't too sure if there were purple peonies, all mine are red and pink.  But when I googled I found quite a lot of different purple variteies. Finally, I mounted my image onto purple silk cardstock...
Thank you for stopping by
Enjoy the rest of your day xx
