Beautiful day

Hello everyone.  I'm back today to share another birthday card I made for my friends order.
I'm using Altenew's Handpicked Bouquet and matching die.

I started by stamping and embossing with platinum the floral onto some watercolour paper.  I then used my Zig markers to watercolour.  Once done I used the coordinating die to cut it out.

For my background I smooshed some distress oxide inks onto my glass mat, spritzed and then dabbed my paper into the inks until I liked what I saw.  I also splattered some distress ink on top once it was dry.  I then used an MFT die to cut out the background.  Some foam tape was added behind the scallop layer then I adhered this to my card base.

The sentiment is from Altenew - Beautiful Day and is embossed in white onto some black c/s.  I then cut it down to make a banner tag and adhered it to the bottom.  I was going to add some dimension in behind the flowers, but didn't want to make this card to thick as I already had some foam tape behind the background layer, so just adhered this flat. 

To finish off I added some enamel dots!

Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate when you do.  Have yourself a fabulous weekend!

Oooh, another pretty today! I feel lucky! This frilly flower is just as sweet as can be and I love that you have the matching die. I like the way it cuts out the inner parts and leaves enough white edges to help it stand out from the background. The scalloped die mat is a nice match for the image which has those ruffly scalloped edges to it. Love your enamel dots for even more fun and the sentiment which pops for a real statement. It's a feast of loveliness!
