Altenew July Inspiration Challenge

This is the inspiration photo for this months Inspiration at 
challenge at Altenew.  
Check out the bright colors, as this month the added 
theme is Weddings.  I don't think I have ever made, or 
thought of a wedding card in these colors. There is the challenge!  

Altenew July Inspiration Challenge - Wedding Season!  
I picked out the corresponding color from my Zig Clean color brushes and stared on my card. 

Just using watercolor paper, and my Zig pens and the stamp set from Altenew, Persian Motifs, I colored the flowers.  Love how they turned out.  I used a die from memory box to die cut the corner,  it is Distressed Windham Collage and I picked out the one that seemed to go with the Persian theme. The paper behind the die looks black, and not bad in the picture that you see, but it is really Fresh Asparagus from GKD.  I think that color would make  better wedding card. I cut a border of watercolor paper to put around the edge.  The sentiment is from the Altenew stamp set and heat embossed with Platinum.   That was it!  
I will be entering this in the challenge, of course, at Altenew July Inspiration Challenge 

Thanks for stopping by, there is time for you to enter as this challenge goes for a month.
