The Challenge #88 - Keywords

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for our latest challenge over at Always Playing With Paper's The Challenge.

Our challenge this week is a "keyword" challenge and I used the lovely Peony Bouquet stamp set from Altenew.  I started my card by using distress inks to create the blue background and then flicked some water for lighter spots.  I used the Gift Box Cover-Up Die-namic from My Favorite Things to diecut the window.  I adhered some acetate and added sequins to make a fun shaker card.  I used gold embossing powder to stamp the flower and sentiment.  I used distress inks to watercolor the flowers and then diecut them using the coordinating dies.

You can use as many of the keywords to create your card as you like.  I used all of them with the exception of birthday.  Be sure to stop by The Challenge to see what the rest of the DT created this week.  I hope you find some time to play along in the challenge.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
