3D floral love

Hello lovelies,

Hope you're all doing good! How is your Valentine preparations?! Well, today I have a valentine card made out from Altenew's Brand new product, 3D Garden Picks die set!

Oh!! I went through difficult times to get it shipped to India! Initially, I was reluctant buying it because of it's high product cost, Shipping and custom duties.  But I ordered one for me as my husband gifted me some dollars on my birthday!  The shipping and customs were like out of the frying pan but into the fire. Anyhow I got one in my hands now! There was a big sigh of relief!  Happy ending!!

Now, I got some time to play with it, so here is my card,





I took a watercolor cardstock and created my Grey BG with gentle brush strokes. Then I roughly sponged the corners with dark grey ink to get vintage spotlight effect. Love the grainy look! Then I created my focal point using Altenew's Garden picks 3d die and the sentiment is from Altenew's script die set. I connected the sentiment and the flowers using fine frames circle die from Altenew. The slit was made to create interest! Adhered my front panel to a pale grey card base! Voila!!

Hope you all liked my card!

I'm entering my card into the following challenges,

Altenew's February inspiration challenge,
( I was inspired by the Color palette as well as the single ranunculus on the Image) Ranunculus is my favourite too!!
