WWC#210 Heidi's "All About Occasions" challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.  Heidi is our hostess this week with an "All About Occasions" challenge.

My card today is for a friend's birthday.  It started with me sorting through some bits and pieces on my desk.  I came across the stamped Altenew flowers that I had done ages ago.(from the Hennah Elements set) .. I stamped a few more of the smaller ones, and the leaves.  I used some Faber Castell Classic pencils to colour them.  I fussy cut them all and then worked on the rest of the card.   The lovely black die cut came from my friend Betty - it's an Altenew die.     As it's an American sized die cut and our cards are a different size, I had to do some die cut surgery to make it fit.  I added it to a white card and then a black card.  I used Rose Gold embossing powder to make the sentiment from Altenew's Sincere Greetings set.  The flowers were added and then I used some Delicata Gold Glitz reinker and water to splatter onto the card.

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes
