Shades of Blue, Touch of Gold



April Inspiration Challenge - Altenew Wild Hibiscus watercolored using distress inks. Other stamps used; Label Love, Golden Garden and Painted Butterflies

Hello everyone!
I really wanted to link up at Virginia's linky party so I decided to combine a couple of challenges together. My inspiration comes from the fabulous card by Joyce Mehrberg, caseing her card (linked at the bottom of this post) for Happy Little Stampers CASE the designer challenge.
And this is my first time playing the Altenew Inspiration Challenge!
You should definitely check out the gorgeous entries!



Here are my cards separately.

This is a one layer card. I waterclored the flowers from the Altenew Wild Hibiscus set. I glued the fussy cut flowers and leaves giving different dimension to all pieces , added some stamping on the background using Golden Garden set, the sentiment is from the Painted Butterflies set. 
My flower centers are very tiny sequins.

For this card, I followed the last week sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch and followed the same pattern as in the previous card, as in fussy cut flowers and stamping on the base.
Stamps used here are from Altenew's Wild Hibiscus, Golden Garden and Label Love.
I don't know if it's visible but there is a gold foil cardstock strip right above the black and white diagonal strip (which I created myself using a black marker).

Here are a couple of closeups.

That's all from my side. I hope you like both the cards!
Thank you for inquiring about my mum folks, she is doing better now - not 100% but better.
Love and hugs everyone!
