The Flower Challenge 5th Birthday & Altenew Challenge

 Hi there Crafty Friends! Wow! It's been 5 years since the start of The Flower Challenge! Congrats to Aileen and the wonderful Design Team.  

I made a wash for the background with Distress Oxide Ink and Karin Marker. The images were all stamped with Karin Markers, fussy-cut and then framed with the gorgeous diamond die-cut. 
Stamps: Altenew Watercolour Extravaganza

I hope you'll visit the Flower Challenge blog and join in the fun. They have some wonderful prizes too.

My next card is inspired by the Altenew Inspiration Challenge:-

The watercolour wash was made with Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powder.  The leaves were stamped and blended with Karin Markers and Distress Ink.  I added some splatter and the burlap bow and the sentiment. I resisted adding a pearl on the bow, so it can be for either gender.
