Altenew Garden Treasure & Spotlighting

What a labor of love these beauties turned out to be!  I stamped several of Altenew's Garden Treasure flowers in gold embossing powder down the left side of the card.  Then, I created a spotlight of one of the flowers on kraft paper.  I used watercolors to highlight the flower and then used pop-it dots to place the flower directly over the earlier embossed flower.  

When I matted the card, I dragged my versa mark ink over the right side of the card to create the gold edging.  I think it completes the card.  And... since I couldn't figure out what type of sentiment the card needed, I decided to leave it blank!

My inspiration came from the 4 Crafty Chicks Spotlight Challenge and since I decided to use Altenew products, I am also entering this card in their August Inspiration Challenge.  The design was inspired from the Case This Sketch #234 blog challenge.  I very rarely combine card challenges - but this week it all worked beautifully!

Happy Crafting!
