Altenew Fine Bouquet Die with a Light Bulb Moment

Hello friends!
I am popping in with another take with the new Fine Bouquet Die from Altenew.
This was my first card with this die. Isn't is lovely?


As the die is super fine and delicate, it really is effortless to create anything. 
Here is my 2nd take with this die. 
hi (2)

I colored the flower and leaves with Watercolor Brush Markers on Bristol paper.
Once dried, I added the die cut piece over, The Ombre Sentiment completed the design.
 Ding--->do not underestimate the power of pattern paper. Here I took out a stripey navy pattern paper and die cut with Fine Bouquet Die! Once I have done that, the rest was easy. The blue and white edged lines really give this die a very distinctive elegant look.

I felt that the flowers needs a little wow factor, so I added some glitter and sequins.

I love the one with the flower stamped in gold (and I usually don't like gold very much) ;-) Well done

Love the gold embossing!

Love the first card AND the second. Love the gold embossed and the stripey look of the rose. I just need to start using pattern paper for more than backgrounds!

Love your light bulb moment... using patterned paper on thin dies works to make a subtle but cool look!

I believe that stripes and florals are always a terrific combo...they certainly were in your case with this beautiful card. They work together so well.
