Prized Peony for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Hop

Hi, Everyone!
First, I want to say I'm so excited to be participating in the Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop September, 2020, hosted by Kylie Bertucci! I earned this honor with my card, Birds and Branches Z-Fold Card, placing in the top 10 of Kylie's September 2020 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my card!

The theme for our cards is thank you, and what better time than now to say a great big Thank You to everyone who has done their part in making our world a safer place. Now on to my card.

The focal point of my card is the beautiful Stampin' Up!®  Peony Die set. I cut mine out of the Perennial Essence Petal Pink Vellum, but it would also be beautiful cut from Petal Pink cardstock. As you can see below, I backed the Peony with a vellum doily that I sponged with Misty Moonlight ink then colored over with Wink of Stella. The Wink of Stella seemed to act as a sealant, as the ink didn't want to set on the vellum.
Behind the peony and vellum I added a piece of Whisper White card stock embossed with one of the Greenery Embossing Folders.

The fold on this card is not the standard fold. I scored the 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Misty Moonlight card base at 1 1/2" and 5 3/4". The front Misty Moonlight piece is 3 1/2" x 4 1/4" and the Whisper White piece is 3 1/4" x 4". I rounded the right-side corners with the versatile Detailed Trio Punch. 
To add a little glitz and glimmer, I  cut a strip of Balmy Blue Glimmer paper with the scallop-strip die from the Peony Die Set. The leaves were cut with dies from the Forever Flourish Die Set.
