That gorgeous flower stamp is from the Precious Peony Stamp Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). I used my Altenew alcohol markers to color my image and then used the matching dies to cut it out.
For the background I used the Classy Stripes Stencil( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) with Embossing Paste( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). I like to apply it randomlyand not to have a perfect finished look as I think it adds more to the look. I then applied on top Glitter – Ice White( SBC | SSS ) before the paste was dry. The glitter sticks to the paste and gives a lovely finish.
If you want to avoid the glitter mess then skip this step of use glitter paste.
The sentiment is from the Sentiment Strips Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS | SBC ) which is really versatile and I find I rach for it again and again for my sentiments. To finish off my card I added some RADIANT ORCHID Pearls ( SSS ).

What a lovely card!
Beautiful coloring and an awesome background! Love those pearls too! 🙂
Love your work and the layering you do. You are one of my favorites for inspiration. Thank you for always sharing.
Beautifully colored and such an elegant design!
Beautiful card Vicki, the hubby has come to expect glitter, glitter everywhere, especially around the Holidays…LOL.
Looking at all the gorgeous cards on this hop really makes me want to color! Your card is so pretty, love the flower and the background.
Such a beautiful card. Thank you for sharing.
Gorgeous card and helpful video. I love Kathy and her coloring challenge, always try to participate.
Lovely card! I love your soft purples.
Thank you for yet another gorgeous inspiration piece. Your explanation of how you achieve the look is so helpful for beginner colorists!
Thank you so much! Love the peonies and that stamp set! Love your color choice, too.
What a great card! I love the way you applied embossing paste & glitter for the background.
Your flower cards are always amazing
Another wonderful, helpful video! Thank you so much for making this gorgeous card doable for the rest of us.
The glitter on the stripes is a wonderful addition to the beautiful flowers.
Thank you for sharing and for being part of the hop!
Wow! Beautiful! I love the embossing paste on the background- so much texture! Gorgeous coloring!
You never cease to amaze me…love your work! TFS!
I am with you…I think the colors you used on the flowers are my favorites too! I’m always looking for different ways to do a background for cards and you just gave me another great one. Thank you for sharing!
Love the glitter!! Gorgeous!! The flowers are fabulous!!
Love the color combination on that pretty glitter background.
I love seeing your coloring. Always amazing!!
Oh so pretty! I like the brush stroke look. Coloring with pencils is my absolute favorite and it helps with anxiety. Sometimes I stamp some images just to color for the sake of coloring. I’ve heard of Kathy’s color challenge before. How supportive to do a blog hop featuring her challenge. Lovely card. Thank you.
How beautiful, Vicky! Love the soft colors & awesome coloring! The glitter paste in the background is a great touch>
Vicky – you are one of my favorite artists. I follow your work on YouTube and really enjoy watching you create all the wonderful projects. This card is another example of your creativity! Just love it! Thank you
This is gorgeous, but we expect no less from you! I agree it’s good to color everyday even for 10 minutes. It’s good for the soul! 🙂
Gorgeous purples and greens! Your flower is so beautifully colored!
Vicky, I was not getting your emails and then poof! There they are in my inbox again! YEAH! I really like the subtle colors of your peonies! They are so pretty and I adore the sparkle that you put behind them for some pop! What a fun hop and so great to see you in my inbox again! Cheers!
Gorgeous card Vicky using your favourite pinks and greens. A fabulous combination I remember you used on the Book Club stamp card with the matching pink Washi Tape. Love the background. Really offsets the flowers.
You are one of my favorites and this does not disappoint. Lovely as always. And unique as always with the variable paste.
So pretty … those colors are so great together
I love the layout & the coloring! Beautiful!
Pretty flower and I like the glittery stripes in the background.
Wow, your coloring is beautiful. Beautiful card.
I know the focus of the blog hop is coloring, but can I just say that I am in LOVE with your stripey, sparkly background! I am so inspired to go do one just like this! And I do love your coloring and the way the wide green frame around the white mat just makes your florals pop! Beautiful card!!!
Your coloring on the flowers is amazing!
Love your card! Especially love that background. Noticed it immediately when I first looked at the card.
First time visiting and I’m already a fan. I love how delicate this card is. Nice and elegant!!
Such a pretty card Vicky. Purples are my favourite colour so I was enthralled to watch you colour up this one.
Beautiful card !! Loved the texture on card base along with the coloring.
Love the coloring
Beautiful colouring, beautiful card!
Beautiful card! I wish I was good at flower coloring.
Your card is beautiful. Even the glitter complements the soft colors you have blended so well. Very amazing!!!!
Your flowers are beautiful.
What a gorgeous card! I love your color combo. I was hoping you were going to color in Copics, so I could copy down the colors.
Love the color combo and the glittery bg on this lovely card!!!
What a beautiful card! Fantastic coloring and gorgeous blooms.
I always love your cards and your simple explanation of the procedure. Particularly on this one, I was very impressed on the texture created with paste and glitter ❤️ Will try this soon! Thanks for sharing your art!
Very lovely. The perfect subtle background really draws the flower to the foreground.
I love your gorgeous flowers, Vicky! They look amazing on the pretty stencilled background! So eye-catching! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring us!
So very pretty, love the dimension and stenciled background!
Beautiful. I truly enjoy watching you work and your voice overs are so pleasant to listen to! Thank you for sharing your talents!!
Love the green background. It brings out the leaves on your beautiful blooms. Love purple!!
Absolutely love how you coloured your flowers, so I will have to buy those other Altenew markers to help with the transitioning of dark to lighter shades when colouring in the future. But what I love most of all is how you partially stenciled the panel and added the glitter.
I guess I never realised that you can partially apply the embossing paste and achieve an awesome effect like you did, I have only ever thought of filling out the entire stencil, so thank you so much for sharing your beautiful card with us and I love your accent too.
Love the background you created, and your coloring is wonderful!
Gorgeous card! I love the sparkle from the glitter and your beautiful color combination. Fabulous inspiration!
Your Precious Peony is so beautifully painted!!! Gorgeous way to set it off with the stenciled background!!
One reason I’m a fan of Altenew is for the florals stamps. They are so elegant and versatile. You did an amazing job, this is a timeless card.
Very delicate and elegant.
Thanks for sharing!
Beautifully crafted! Love adding glitter or embossing powder to texture paste! But I love the effect of the partial use of the simple stencil… beautiful coupled with the flower!
Pretty card. Glitter is lovely
This card is for you. You are amazing! Love all the details and texture. Wonderful coloring and shading. Plus an awesome video, too. Thank you, Vicky!
What a gorgeous card and design. Your colouring is beautiful.
Beautiful coloring! I love the colors you used.
Very beautiful card. Love the sparkly background.
Enjoyed your video. Love your card.
Your background is beautiful! I should have a stencil day and just make a bunch of white on white backgrounds with texture paste (and glitter, of course!) Your flowers turned out amazing too!
Beautiful card! I love the colors and the texture of the background!
Oh my word Vicky 🙂 What’s not to love?!? That lovely peony…those fluffy background stripes….the glimmer in those stripes…your impeccable coloring…that clean simple sentiment. It ALL equals one amazing card!!! Thanks so much for inspiring me 🙂
You always inspire me with your beautiful coloring. This card is gorgeous — beautiful style and amazing colors.
