Water Coloured Altenew Painted Flowers

Morning all.
Just popping by to announce the start of a brand new challenge over at Cardz4Galz.
This week our theme is -


Here is my card.

My card was influenced by a couple of challenges, over at MUSE, Paper Players and Can You CASe it?. The layout is based on the fab MUSE card by Jenni Murray but the colours are from Can You CASe It?.
The stamped flowers are by Altenew, these Painted Flowers are certainly my go to choice of flowers at the moment, so versatile. Although a three stage stamp, this time I stamped the outline in Versafine Onyx Black then water coloured the blooms with Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean DI leaving the leaves white, then fussy cut them. The frame is a die by Memory Box, Large Circle Burst and the sentiment from LOTV.
I cut the top layer from some pale grey card in my stash  and slipped a scrap of midnight blue card underneath to show through the die cut and stamped the sentiment on a scrap circle from my bits box. I shaped the flowers before adding then to the bottom right of the frame, job done.
Please check out the rest of the team here and why not join in?

I'd like to join in over at -
