Altenew Fine Bouquet Die

Hi everyone!  Popping in to share a card using this gorgeous Altenew Fine Bouquet die.  This is such a pretty die. 

I didn't have any particular plan when I started.  I just wanted to try the die out, so I was kind of winging it.

I started by cutting the die from PTI Weathervane cardstock.  Originally I was going to inlay some patterned paper, but I wasn't crazy about how that looked, so instead I chose a patterned paper (from Pinkfresh Indigo Hills 2) to use for the background.  Then I cut the die from white and inlaid those pieces for the flower itself, leaving gray in the leaves/berries.

The die actually only has foliage on two sides of the flower, but I wanted a bit more in the corner of this card for balance, so I die cut the piece one more time, and used a couple of the sprigs in the corner.

I finished the panel off with an old sentiment from Papertrey Ink.  The entire panel was then popped up over my gray card base.

Thanks so much for visiting and hope your day is going well!
