Thanks for all that you have done!

Hello friends,
Today I have a card to share which I have made especially to play along with this time's Altenew Challenge. The colors this time are absolutely bright and gorgeous and I really wanted to work with them. Here's a look at what I created using them :

This one has lots of techniques involved. To start with, I used a piece of white cardstock measuring 4.5 inches X 5.25 inches and then ink blended it using my newest Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber ink & Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink. Love the beautiful ink blending we get with these Oxide inks! I embossed this piece using the WRMK Next Level - Geometric Embossing folders. Then for my focal I die-cut the Altenew Thanks die from some watercolour cardstock on which I had previously done some ink blending and water spritz and also die-cut the word once more from a black foam sheet. I then stamped, and fussy-cut the images from the Altenew Remember This stamp set. This set has some gorgeous florals and foliage. I colored the flowers using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I then added strips of black striped Washi Tape to further enhance the card. I added a white heat-embossed sentiment from the Wplus9 Ranunculus set and I used my Nuvo Crystal Drops for the finishing touches.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges :

I hope you like my card. As always your comments and suggestions are welcome. Have a good day everyone!
