Epiphyllum Feel Better Card

This is my second card using the Epiphyllum Craft-a-Flower set by Altenew, and this time, I used a 6X6 card base I created out of green cardstock. I layered a white panel with a black frame and then added a panel of sand-colored cardstock I embossed using Altenew's Bewitching Rose embossing folder. I was following the inspiration challenge photo on Altenew's challenge blog, so I chose my color scheme according to the challenge prompt. 

For the flower, I used panels I had ink blended with Stormy Skies distress ink and sprayed with water and splattered with white glimmer watercolor paint to die cut the flower petals. Then I die cut the flower center out of white card stock and then colored it with my Ohuhu alcohol ink markers. For the leaves, I die cut the packaging from an Altenew embossing folder. I liked the color and shininess of the cardstock they used and didn't want it to go to waste. I adhered the leaves to the embossed panel using Art Glitter glue and then popped up the flower using foam tape. 

The "feel better soon" sentiment is from the Build-A-Garden: Grand Carnations set and has a coordinating die I used to cut it out. I adhered it to the card with foam tape.

This is the packaging I used to die cut the leaves:

I die cut several leaves as well as the "bloom" sentiment from Altenew's Craft-A-Flower: Bellflower layering die set:
