Jennifer McGuire recently posted a card with a die cut circle and elements coming out from the circle. She also featured a background technique.
I went with this MFT floral background in black and white, Whippersnapper butterfly colored with Copices and a sentiment embossed in white.
This turned out very different than Jennifer's cards. It's also an unusual look for me. But I love it!

This is another Distress Oxide ink with an Altenew floral image, Beautiful Day. I borrowed my friend's die for this card. Oh, my, now I want the dies too!!!
My metallic of choice is almost always gold. However, I used silver on this and I like it!
I thought it would be a sympathy card. They I put Stickles on the center of the flower. Now I'm not sure it qualifies for a sympathy card so I left the sentiment off.
The scallop rectangle die is from MFT. This card was its inauguration.
Erum Tasneem posted the most beautiful card using the Adore You Altenew stamp set.
I have copied her layout but used Distress Oxide instead of the more vibrant watercolors she used.
I smushed the Oxide ink 3 times, drying thoroughly between each application.
I am happy with Tim Holtz' spatter brush and Gold Mica for the spatters . . . something that I've struggled with.
The Thanks die is from W Plus 9.
