Altenew May 2024 Inspiration Challenge...

Hi. I am back after a break. And I am excited to take part in some challenges.

I ran a piece of white card stock through the 3D embossing folder that is a part of the Craft Your Life Garden Rose kit and adhering it to a top folding card base.

I started by stamping the Altenew Paint-a-Flower Magnolia Rustica Rubra stamp twice. I used Artists Alcohol Markers to color the images. For the pink flower I did some simple shading. For the yellow flower, I used the dot coloring technique. I fussy cut the flowers out and inked the outline with black marker. 

The leaves and the small flower are from the Altenew Wispy Joy stamp & die set. The sentiment is from the Altenew Fresh Freesia stamp set. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
