Altenew May Inspiration

I took one look at the Altenew inspiration colors for this month, and thought of my Mom - that bright fuschia pink is her color.  So I thought I'd make a birthday card now for her birthday in August.  I know she'll love this, especially with the glittery circle!  It started out as a one-layer card, but when I decided to use the circle, I had to fussy-cut out my image, and layered it over the circle.

supplies: white cardstock, fuschia glitter paper, Altenew Garden Treasure and Painted Greetings, 2 circle dies to make ring, moonshine sequins

I decided to forego the 2nd step for these flowers, and left some white in them.  It's a fun thing to change up every now and again......

Here's our inspiration photo.
