The Card Concept # 54 Lilacs and Shades of blue

Hello! There is a new Inspiration photo at The Card Concept to work with. 
Fresh Lilacs:))  LUSH shades of Spring! 
I was inspired by both the blooms and the steel blue metal pale in the photo.


Here is my card:
I stamped three Large Blooms from the Beautiful Day set, varying the colors for each one. After stamping all the  layers in different shades of blue and embossed the outline layer in gold. Then  I fussy each one out. I chose one cut down to the smaller center bloom and used the outside petals behind the main flower on my card, to give it a fuller look:)

The inks are from the COOL SUMMER NIGHTS and GREEN FIELDS sets from Altenew too.
The Embossing is METALLIC GOLD RICH Pale from WOW!!
Sequins Pretty Pink Posh:))

Hope this inspires you to play along!
