Altenew September Challenge

Once again, I have a last minute entry for the Altenew Challenge.  
Took me awhile to come up with an idea, but finally I remembered the Vintage Lace embossing folder with coloring stencils.  I watched the layering guide video & it's very helpful.  The color combo in the inspiration photo is really beautiful & I found these inks matched it pretty well:  Altenew Coral Berry & Frayed Leaf, PTI Pale Peony. 
The sentiment from Floral Frame was silver embossed & die cut with Altenew Nesting Ovals.  I also embossed the oval edges & added a couple cardstock layers for dimension. 
The tiny flower has Silver Stickles in the center & I used silver metallic cardstock for the mat.  I'm also entering SSS Monday and SSS Wednesday
My heart goes out to everyone dealing with the hurricane. Hard to imagine so much devastation in a few hours.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.
