Periwinkle Peony

I was thrilled to see Memory Box coming out with collections of heavy-weight cardstock in 6" pads in lots of different color ways!  As soon as I could, I scooped up 4 of them to play with and I'm very happy with the wonderful variety of colors.  Here's the first card I made with 2 of the pads.

supplies: white cardstock, Memory Box Ocean Blue, Lush Green, and Sunny Orange Collections, Sunny Studio Gingham Pastel dp,  Altenew Peony Dream dies, Simon Sketched Flowers sentiment, a yellow enamel dot

I chose 5 different periwinkle shades from the Ocean Blue pad to construct my large flower, and 2 greens from the Lush Green pad for the leaves.  The lavender/blue worked perfectly with this little gingham pattern,

These papers are beautifully sturdy and nice and smooth with no texture, made of 110# cardstock, and I plan to get all of the other pads going forward.  Right now there are 9 different solid color collections.  They are perfect for layering dies!

Edited to add: Michele pointed out the current challenge at The Flower Challenge: Shades of Purple.   I think this will work for it.

I always say I'm not a fan of blue - but this periwinkle shade of purple-y blue is just gorgeous! Now I do hope you'll consider sharing it at The Flower Challenge? I think the girls will love it, too!
