Ready for Spring!

I am so ready for spring, how about you? I just had to create a card with pretty flowers to help me deal with the grey weather:


I made this inspired by the lovely images of the Altenew March Challenge: From Places Abroad. The flowers of the third photo were my main inspiration, but I also wanted to use vellum that was inspired by the second photo showing the beautiful glass door.
So I started the card with a piece of vellum and stamped and heat-embossed some vines from the Hennah Elements stamp set using white embossing powder. Then I adhered the panel to the card. Now I stamped and heat-embossed flowers and leaves from Whimsical Flowers onto cardstock and colored them using Distress Inks mixed with water. I cut them out and adhered them to the cardbase. Finally, I added clear sequins to finish the card off.
This month's Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday theme is "spring", so I'll enter it there, too.
Thanks for visiting!

Vanessa

supplies:
Altenew Whimsical Flowers, Hennah Elements - Ranger Distress Inks - Tsukineko ink - Pretty Pink Posh sequins
