Vintage Flowers

Hi and welcome to my blog! Of course all my flowers are gone except for my pansies, but I am showing a flower card I made today from this picture inspiration from Altenew. Aren't these lovely flowers and colors?  These flowers look like snow and we have snow in the forecast today!

Here is my card. I used the Altenew Vintage Flowers set and stamped the flowers with white pigment ink. The ink tends to soak into the card stock so I colored over the flowers again with a white colored pencil. I used Gold Liquid Pearls for the flower centers.

The saying came from the Altenew layered Lily set. I embossed the saying with gold embossing powder and outlined the "thanks" with a black marker.

I flicked some gold metallic paint across the card for interest and then added the bow and butterfly. The twig was outlined with a gold metallic marker.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you are enjoying the new year so far!
