Altenew Layered Lily

I've admired cards made with Altenew stamps for a long time, so was really happy to win a gc. Usually I agonize for months over what to get, but it expired in 1 month.  Thought about butterflies, but in the end decided on the Layered Lily--not like any of the floral stamps I have. Usually I let myself order a bit more than the gc, so I also got the matching dies & the Painted Greetings sentiment set.  
I think I made a great choice--loved making this card!  I used the gorgeous color combo for the August Altenew Inspiration challenge. I tried a lot of inks & ended up using these: VersaMagic Pixie Dust & Pink Petunia; Brilliance Pearlescent Coral (a pink ink), Starlite Black, Platinum Planet & Starlite Silver; Delicate Silvery Shimmer.  The splatters are done with Pearlescent Coral & Distress Stain brushed pewter.  The stitching is Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle & I used 3 PPP clear dots for embellishment.  I'm also entering Curtain Call, The Playground & Stamping Sensations.  Life has kept me busy, so I'm a little behind on reading blogs. Don't think I've forgotten you--I'll catch up soon.
