Beautiful day

I have always been in awe (and a bit in love) with Altenew's gorgeous flower sets.  I finally got one of my favorites a month or so ago and pulled it out to create this birthday card for my aunt.  Her birthday is Christmas Eve, so I wanted to stay away from anything Christmasy.  I went with some soft colors and lots of texture to create this elegant card for her.
Both the die cut circle and the bit of green sheer ribbon were in my bits and pieces stash.  And all the images were stamped on scraps of white, colored and fussy cut.

Supplies:
Stamps: Altenew "Beautiful Days"
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large"
damask embossing folder

Challenges:

Altenew Inspiration Challenge--A Year in Review (I chose the challenge in the middle on the top row: gray, green and pink, though my colors are more muted that those in the photo)

Crafty Calendar--anything BUT a Christmas card + add ribbon (I used a little piece of ribbon that was in my bits and pieces stash)
Penny Black--flowers all over
Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends #125--anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown #447--anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #419--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Atlantic Hearts Sketch #348--sketch

Make My Monday #112--female birthday
Tuesday Morning Sketches #535--anything goes
Cute Card Thursday #614--anything goes
