A flower blossoms for its own joy

I’m sharing a card I made for a friend’s birthday featuring the flower from the Beautiful Day set by Altenew.

To make up my card I used the inspiration photo from the current Altenew challenge.  I picked up the two flowers and three leaves as well as the layout and the sequin embellies and used them on my card.

I went with pink for my flowers and cardstock mats as it is think pink for breast cancer awareness over at Casual Fridays.  And, as my card features a layered stamp I am also linking it up at Less is More.  To add interest I stamped the outline of the flowers and leaves with embossing ink and added gold embossing powder.  I used the same embossing powder for the sentiment, which also comes in the same set, and finished off the card with gold sequins.

  2. What a fabulous make for the LIM layered stamping theme this week


  3. Love your pretty flower card a lot! Perfect entry to our Cas-ual Fridays challenge and good luck!

  4. The pink and gold is a lovely combination for these beautiful Altenew flowers. And although you've matted the panel on a few layers, it's still wonderfully clean and simple.
