A Little Reminder.....

Hello everyone: THE FLOWER CHALLENGE has reached it's halfway point so, here's my second card for this challenge in which we're asking you to create a card using either Vellum or Acetate.
I created my first card with Vellum so, I wanted to give the Acetate a try.  After a few failed attempts at actually stamping on it, I decided to just create a window using it.  I hope the glare of the lights are not as noticeable, it was a real pickle to take this picture😕

I have this beautiful paper that I get when I buy stamp sets from POWER POPPY, Marcella Hawley always wraps the sets with this lovely paper and I save those strips every time, this one came in real handy as a background for my card.
The die cut flower is from a very old die set from Sizzix called "Flower Lily" but unfortunately it's discontinued😢
I used a piece of watercolor paper to die cut it and then, sponged the flower with Distress Inks and colored the stamen with SU markers. The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Dynamic Duos: Peonies and Tulips.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from another Power Poppy set called Sunny Harvest.

I would like to play along with the following challenges.

Dare 2BArtzy May Challenge "Dreaming of Flowers"

Make My Monday Challenge #71 "Hints of Summer to Come"

The Paper Girls Challenge #151 "Friendship"

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
