Aqua and Gray Florals

Good morning! My daughter recently turned 15, and as always, I try to set some time aside to make a very special just-for-them birthday card on their special day! I chose this card to reflect some of her favorite colors, and also the fact that she is getting so very grown up - that's why this is a more grown up card than I think I've done so far! I pulled out several of my Altenew stamp sets to build this card!

I started off with the Beautiful Day Clear Stamp Set, and stamped the flowers using just 3 of the layers - skipping the base layer. I used Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, and Lagoon Crisp Dye inks to stamp the flowers. I can never get over the amazing layering of Altenew floral images - the realism is astounding and breathtaking! I stamped just one layer of the leaves from this set to fill in the background using Silver Stone ink

It felt like it need a few additional pops of color, so I filled in some tiny flowers from Vintage Roses using Mountain Mist ink, then I pulled out some Pretty Pink Posh Pearl White Jewels to add to the centers of all the flowers - it was the perfect touch of elegant sparkle! Finished off by adding the sentiment that was built with Birthday Greetings and Floral Shadow, die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle, matted with some gray cardstock, and mounted on a white cardbase.
