just because...

Happy Monday... ha, ha!!  Stopping in with a card for the current Essentials by Ellen Mix It Up (mixing it up with Altenew) challenge, as well as the October Altenew challenge.  Since I'm trying to use my small stash of Altenew products more often combining the two challenges was the perfect opportunity.  I used Altenew's Layered Lily stamps and dies for the flower and a sentiment from the Essentials by Ellen Lovely stamp set.  I used inks from Altenew, Memento and Stampin Up! to create the flower and the leaves.  I did stamp the little stamens in the center of the flower, but I used a really light gray ink and so you can't see them in the photo.   The sentiment was stamped on vellum and heat embossed in white.  Before adhering the flower and leaves to the die cut circle I added a little nest of silver thread.  The layout comes from CAS(E) this Sketch so I will be adding it there.  I'm going to add this to Simon Says Stamps Word Card Making Day gallery, as well.




Have a wonderful day... 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  white, pink, light gray, woodgrain, vellum; Stamps:  Essentials by Ellen and Altenew; Dies:  Altenew and AJVD; Inks:  Stampin Up!, Memento, Altenew, MFT; DMC silver thread; Embossing powder:  Hero Arts white
