So Amazing.....

Hello everyone: Today we have a very gray and rainy morning up here in NW Indiana so I felt like making a card with some bright colors and flowers before they are gone from our gardens.  I saw a card at the Muse Challenge #185 in which my dear friend Aileen Ryan from Colour and Sparkle is the Guest Designer so, I was inspired by her card to make mine.


This image from the Altenew set Peony Bouquet was stamped onto a Ninah Solar White card base with Altenew inks, I made a mask with some copy paper of the outline of the big flower to stamp the small flowers and leaves. Then, I stamped the outline with Tim Holtz Antique Linen, I didn't want a hard edge on this pretty flowers.  Once I stamped all the layers, I went in with my Prismacolor pencils to add some shadows and highlights on each petal, the Sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Azaleas.
********************************************************************
This is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from a new Power Poppy set called Dynamic Duos: Foxglove and Ranunculus, the little butterfly from SU Papillon Potpourri.

I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.
The Muse Challenge #185 Guest Muse Aileen Ryan.
