The Most Beautiful Day

I finally found some time to play in Altenew's latest Inspiration Challenge for this month.  It hit all my buttons, because our anniversary is Monday, (our45th!), and I carried yellow roses on our wedding day, so I couldn't wait to make a bouquet of Altenew's lovely Vintage Roses!


supplies: ivory and black cardstock, Altenew Vintage Roses and sentiment from Beautiful Day, Cheery Lynn French Pastry doily die, sparkling clear sequins, Mini Misti, Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares

I had originally planned to just stamp the roses and keep this a 1-layer card, but the more I looked at the inspiration photo, I wanted to add some lace to the mix, so I ended up fussy cutting my roses and popping them over this pretty doily.  The sentiment is perfect for the occasion, and I sprinkled some sequins to mimic the pretty sparkle on Amy's dress.  

Here's the lovely inspiration:
