Beautiful in Grey & Pink...

Hi. I am here today with a card that I made out of two flowers that I colored as part of the 30 Day Color Challenge. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Beautiful Day stamp set by Altenew and colored them with my Altenew Artist Markers. Here are the two flowers I colored, using shades of red and pink.

And here is the card I made with the two flowers.

I die-cut the flowers and the leaves and set them aside. I took a strip of white cardstock and used the Artist Markers to create a plaid design. Here is a closer look at the plaid.

I covered the plaid with some vellum to tone it down and then adhered it to a dark grey card base, popped up on foam tape.

The sentiment is from the Fresh Freesia stamp set by Altenew. It was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed Metallic Pastel Pink embossing powder by Wow!. I arranged the flowers on the card and then added a few leaves to compliment the cluster. Here is a closer look at the flowers.

To finish, I adhered everything in place and then used a corner rounder to round the bottom corners of the card. Here is another look at the card.

I really love the way this card turned out. The grey and pink combo is one of my favorites and I love the little peek of the plaid behind the flowers.

Entering this card in the following challenges.

Altenew A Year In Review Challenge 2019:
This card was inspired by the challenge for August 2019. I loved the bright pink bloom with the green leaves against the neutral grey background.
