Altenew Bewitching Rose Birthday Card

I recently purchased Altenew's Bewitching Rose Craft Your Life set (embossing folder, stamp set, stencil set, and coordinating die), and it's so fun to have a floral set that has so many parts that all coordinate so beautifully! 

For this card, I followed Altenew's October challenge theme of red, orange, and pink and used a woodgrain card stock as the background to follow the photo on their challenge board from that month. This month's challenge is to use one of their previous challenges this year as inspiration. 

To create the focal point, I used the 3D embossing folder on white card stock to emboss the floral grouping. Then I used the 4 coordinating stencils to color everything. Finally, I ran it through my die cutter with the coordinating die.

I stamped "Happy Birthday" was a stamp from the same set and then used my paper trimmer to cut it to the size I wanted it. I adhered the florals and the sentiment to the top-folding 6X6 card base I had created.
