Altenew Inspiration Challenge

Altenew has a challenge from places abroad, and I new I had to enter as this challenge is Thailand. 

I was fortunate to have visited Bangkok, seven years ago and remember it well.  What an experience, one that I would not have imagined if our daughter and family were not living there.  There is so much color and gold and everything shines. 
I when back to look at some of my pictures from our visit there.  
There are shrines everywhere

This is the reclining Buddha.
The Royal Palace
 Well, enough reminiscing, I want to show you my card that was inspired by this challenge and my visit to Thailand. 

I was inspired by the colors of the inspiration photo.  
To make this card here is what I used.
Card stock from Gina K Designs, Ocean Mist, Black Onyx and White.
EF , gold Color Shine spray,  Spellbinder die Majestic Elements ( just parts of that)
Frozen Glitter on the blue ornaments.
Altenew stamp Painted butterflies and Wink of Stella on them.
