Beautiful Blossoms with Altenew

Hello my friends and welcome to November 2023 Beautiful Blossom Challenge where florals are always the focal point:
Here is our gorgeous inspiration photo for this month - not required to use, but sure is a good "jumping off" place!
I made 4 cards with Altenew's Beautiful Day Stamp Set. This is an older set that I reach for over and over. It makes perfect "almost" one-layer cards. Here I was inspired by the inspiration photo and used those colors.
I have been loving Ranger Ink's Distress White Heavystock Paper and have been using it for card fronts and card bases. Makes for a really nice sturdy card and can handle inks, sprays, pastes, etc. so well.
For my cards I used mostly Altenew's Crisp Dye Inks. The base was always the lightest layer and then got progressively darker. 
Here they are by Altenew color unless otherwise noted:
Pink:                                                    Blue:
1) Pink Diamond                                      1) Sea Breeze
2) Ruby Red                                            2) Tide Blue
3) Catherine Pooler Rockin' Red                3) Desert Night
4) Obsidian Black Pigment Ink                  4) Obsidian Black Pigment Ink

Yellow:                                                Orange:
1) Simon Says Stamp Lemonade                1) Marigold
2) Simon Says Stamp Sunbeam                 2) Autumn Blaze
3) Simon Say Stamp Citrine                       3) Firebrick
4) Obsidian Black Pigment Ink                    4) Obsidian Black Pigment Ink

Moss, Forest Glades & Evergreen
This is a layered stamp with 4 separate stamps to make one flower. Very easy to line up and if it isn't perfect, it doesn't matter! It's just fun to get out the acrylic blocks and just plain stamp for a change.
I used some Ranger Ink Stickles in gold for the center of the flowers and the stamens.
The Thank you sentiments are from various retired sets: The Stamp Market and Reverse Confetti.

Well that is it for today and thanks for staying to the end. Come join us - the challenge runs for approximately 1 month and we look forward to seeing your work!
