altenew beautiful day

My beautiful DD just celebrated her 21st birthday. I decided to go all out on her birthday card. For me that means... add layers ;)

Inspired by this lovely by Kathleen, I set about to do something similar using a new-to-me Altenew set called Beautiful Day. Keeping the May Inspiration Challenge at Altenew in mind, this is what happened. Everything but the kitchen sink!

Altenew and Simon Says Stamp inks
Heidi Swapp black Color Shine
patterned paper, washi, doily, sticker, ribbon

I started with an oversized off-white pearlescent cardbase. And I knew DD likes rose gold. So I took it from there. Die cut the monogram. Added splatters to the cardbase and set it aside to dry. Stamped the peony and leaves and die cut them.  Arranged the pieces and decided to add some stamping to the cardbase to peek out. Took me forever to get it all figured out (layers are not my forte!) but DD liked it. And appreciated it (she's such a good kid!).

Thanks for visiting today. Hope you had a nice holiday weekend.

I'm also playing at:
Happy Little Stampers - May AG with Dies
A2Z Scrapbooking - May Flowers
Cuttlebug Mania - Orange

Fabulous freestyle layering! You’re like me, getting a stamp late in the day - this is one of my fave Altenew stamps. Gorgeous colours and elements. I hope your dd had a wonderful 21st. My daughter turned 21 this year too:)
