June Inspiration Challenge at Altenew

I had to make a Wedding Card, and the photo inspiration above was my starting point.  I just loved the pretty sparkle on the dress, and the flowers.  Luckily, my order from Atlenew had just arrived and what a yummy parcel it is, I'll be playing lots with all the goodies!

I started by embossing some Neenah Solar White card with a Cuttlebug music folder. I then stamped the pretty flower from Peony Bouquet.  These are layered flowers, you build them up using gradually darker shades to stamp with.  Altenew make it easy with their little sets of four ink cubes, for this flower I used the Red Cosmos set.

Now I didn't have much time to make this card and the fussy cutting on the flower isn't perfect, but layering up these flowers is so much fun I think I'm going to have to buy the matching dies.

I die cut Simon Says Stamp clustered leaves from some green felt and the sentiment from Papermania pink textured card and scattered some Pretty Pink Posh clear droplets.

Altenew have some absolutely gorgeous layered flower stamps.  I'm going to have to go back for some more!

I'd like to enter this into:
