Happy Anniversary!

Good Evening!

This is my entry to the CAS(E) this Sketch #105,
The Card Concept #26 and
It's been quite hectic life since Christmas - not a whole lot time for crafting. I saw the sketch at the CAS(E) this sketch and wanted to participate. I had a few ideas on my mind for that one, this one actually ended up into a finished card.

I started with stamping the flower - Lacy Scrolls from Altenew a craft cardstock and coloured it with Coloursoft Pencils and with the same technique as the previous Altenew cards.  I used more grey/cool colours this time since I wanted it to match to the grey cardstock and then cut it out. The partial frame is die cut from Spellbinders and the background paper is handmade paper bought from a craft store in UK. It is called White Silk. The sentiment is from a Painted Poppy stamp set by Altenew. I stamped it with black pigment ink and then heat embossed it with Clear Matt Dull Embossing powder. The frame and the flower is popped up with foam tape.

I will enter this into these challenges:
The Card Concept #26 - One year anniversary: Clean and Layered

Here are challenges' graphics:

Thank you for stopping by today and thank you for your comments from my Altenew Guest Design post. They made my day! Video tutorials... me... hmm..
