Muse Card Challenge #153

Today, I have a card to share that I made for the Muse Challenge #153,
which was to be inspired by this card by Tracey McNeely:


I love the colours that Tracey used, as well as how she placed her pretty flowers.
I decided to use Altenew's Beautiful stamp set to make my card.


I started off by stamping my flowers as a one-layer card, masking the peonies.
But I wasn't happy with how it turned out, so I cut out the pink and yellow flowers
from my original card, separately.
Then, I stamped the blue flower and leaves on a new card base
and adhered the other two flowers over top.


The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti's Peacock Pretties.

Thanks for looking!

Okay, it's all your fault. You have used this set by Altenew now on a few of your recent cards. I had been eyeing it and finally had to have it because of you. I am not responsible.

Another gorgeous card, Leigh!
