Altenew Challenge Card

I love the contrast of the deep burgundy and the straw yellow, with the white for this Altenew challenge.  I knew right away I wanted to use my peony bouquet stamps for this card.  
Stamps used:  Altenew Peony Bouquet clear set 
Dies:  WPlus9 hello die
           Spellbinders Flourish Two die

I water colored the peony and leaves in the no line method using Tim Holtz distress inks and markers, then fussy cut them.  I attached them with foam tape onto a watercolor panel that I had smooshed scattered straw and antique linen distress ink onto.  I used the same ink on the hello die, and attached that, then the flourish corner.  Some sequins finish off the composition.
I am adding my card to these challenges: 

Altenew Challenge  - Inspiration picture 
City Crafter Challenge - Use the word 'hello'

Simon Says Monday Challenge - Use something new  (corner flourish die)
