Altenew"s Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop

My card share tonight is for Altenew's Ultimate Blog Challenge. September is full of birthdays for me, so I am using this challenge to get another card made. 
To make my card I started with a Smoky Slate top folding card base and some of the Winter Perfectly Plaid designer paper from Lawn Fawn. I used Peony Bouquet set from Altenew and the Mini MiSTI. The MISTI makes it so easy to line up two or three step stamps. 
I cut a stitched tag with the Anytime Tag dies from Lil' Inker Designs to make the focal point. I the stamped the first layer of the peony using Bo Peep, the second layer with Lake House and the third layer with Ocean Drive, all from Wplus9, for the leaves I used Hero Arts Lime Green and Green Hills.  The greeting is from the Altenew Birthday Greetings set and I used a Copic marker to color in the word happy. To finish the card I added some sequins for sparkle.

I loved the colors in the Inspiration Photo for Ellen Hutsons Pin-Sights challenge, so they were my inspiration for the colors I used.

I am also entering it in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of
