Altenew June Inspiration Challenge

Dear Ones~
Here it is Sunday evening already. Where does the time go?

Today's offering is for the Altenew June Inspiration Challenge. Here is the beautiful photo they supplied us -

And here is my card:
The background stamp is by Penny Black. I heat embossed it with pearl embossing powder, and I thought it mimicked the dress in the photo pretty well. Plus I added the sequins for added sparkle. I kinda wish I hadn't put the black dots in the centers of the flowers, but - too late. Hindsight is 20/20.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Jellybean Green and White Card Stock
SU Lost Lagoon Card Stock
Penny Black Slapstick Background Stamp
Altenew Beautiful Day Stamp Set
Various Leaf Die Cuts
GKD Sweet Corn Ink
Memento Dandelion Ink
Our Daily Bread Lace Border Die
Black Enamel Accents

I will also be entering this in the Penny Black June Challenge - Flower Power.
