Altenew love!

Hello friends,
I  have a card to share today and I am kind of excited about this because it's completely stamped one layer card, in the sense that I did not use a card panel to adhere on the card base instead this was directly done on the card base itself and Its my first try with a background building stamps and I am so thrilled with the results.
Here's a look at what I have created :

And here's an another view :

These both view were clicked on different days hence the change in photo props :)
To create this card, I first stamped the border using the Wplus 9 Borders and Backgrounds 2 set using Altenew Warm Sunshine ink. Then I stamped the flower from the Altenew Vintage Flowers set using their Red Cosmos inks ..So perfect for the layered look.
The leaves and foliage were stamped from Altenew Beautiful Day set. It's such a gorgeous set with beautiful flowers and foliage images.... Totally in love with it :) The leaves and foliage were also stamped with Altenew Green Fields ink. I colored the small flowers using various Altenew inks. The sentiment is from the Beautiful Day set and stamped using their Jet Black ink. Finished the card with some black ink spatters and PPP sequins.

 The colors in my card are very much inspired from the gorgeous picture inspiration from the Fusion card challenge. They are celebrating their 2nd anniversary this time and they have such an amazing line up of inspiration from various designers ..I just had to play along !!

I am entering this card for the following challenges :

Fusion card challenge - 2nd Anniversary celebration.
