Praying for You Bellflower Card

I'm in love with Altenew's Craft-A-Flower sets! I purchased a few of them for Christmas when they were half off (my husband and I pick out our own birthday and Christmas gifts every year, so I always get what I want 😁), and these sets are so easy to assemble with the keyhole and arrow cut outs on the flower pieces. Just line them up using those cut outs, and the flowers turn out perfectly every time! 

For the base of this A2 card, I used kraft card stock. Then I used a stencil from Altenew's Build-A-Garden: Grand Carnation set and blended black ink over the stencil to create a background panel for my flowers. 

For the flowers, I die cut them out of a few shades of blue and then used my Ohuhu alcohol ink markers on a few of the petals because I liked the look that created. I adhered the die cut stem and leaves with Art Glitter glue and then added the flowers and the sentiment (the "praying for you" stamp is from Altenew's Craft Your Life Project Kit: Casual Bouquets) using foam tape for dimension.
