On your Special Day

Hi friends!
This is third card I made for my Mudra post. I personally liked this one a lot, here's a look at my card :

Unlike my usual cards, I have not used a white card base here and gone with black. I really like how the flowers pop up against the stark black background.
If you see closely, you can see that I have dry embossed a clock on my card panel. I did that using my Embossing Tan Mats and have used a PaperTrey Ink die for doing so. As I mentioned in my previous post, it's my newest buy and I really love it a lot. It adds such a nice subtle texture to my card.

To make this card, I took a piece of an A4 black cardstock & folded it in half to create to create a top folding card. I die-cut a card front panel using my Gina Marie Stitched dies. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Botanical Blooms set by Mudra. The inks I have used here are from the Altenew Minis in Red Cosmos & Cool Summer Night. Fussy-cut the flowers and the foliage and arranged them around the embossed area. I added some color coordinated ink spatters on the card front & to finish off,  I used some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to give some sparkle and shine. Finally added the sentiment for my card which is also from a Mudra set.

I'm entering my card in the Virginia's View ChallengeCreative with Stamps, Aud Sentiments and Creatilicious Challenges.
