Another Take on Craft-A-Flower

Hello friends!
...and Happy Mother's Day to you! 
I am popping in with another take with the latest release Altenew's Craft-a-Flower Lily.

 Thanks to my previous card, I have a few odd pieces left. I decided to mix the pieces up a bit to create a more whimsical kind of Lily.
Call this card a mash-up.
wishing you joy today  

 Definition of mash-up : something created by combining elements from two or more sources: such
 a piece of music created by digitally overlaying an instrumental track with a vocal track from a different recording.

 I love the organic feel of water-coloring. AND I also love the controlled balance and precision of die-cutting/stamping. This card is a great representative of that approach.
wishing you joy

to add and highlight shine, I cut up a few small squares from Gold Washi Tape for the background.
As for the Lily, I also used Gold Foil Paper for the layering.

Both of the lily cards are gorgeous. I really like the addition of the gold on the second lily. The addition of the gold washi tape really brings out the gold on the lily itself. Also love the organic look of the second lily bloom!
