Beautiful Day and Memories

The flowers in the Altenew Beautiful Day set just makes me want to color and color.  This time I went with a no line look by stamping in Stampin' Up! Rose Red and then coloring with Copics (G24, YG06, G07, RV52, RV21, and RV55).  I did a little bit of gray shading with N0 and the blender pen.  I knew I wanted to add the black with grey shadow Quietfire Design's Memories die cut but the top was left with too much white space which I normally wouldn't mind.  

I tried something new by tucking in my layer through the largest die from the Vintage Borders Dies by ODBD and was pleasantly surprised that it was a perfect fit!  I really like the border I ended up with as it had just the right curvature. 

I added a gray background against the white card base to finish my card.
