Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Winter Wonder & Simon Wednesday Challenge

Here is the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Winter Wonder. Below is the inspiration photo:

I was inspired by the colors of this challenge photo - white, kraft, and silver colors and decided to make a card with Altenew's Persian Motifs set. Here is the finished card:

I stamped the flowers and white embossed on Neenah desert storm cardstock.  Then, I colored the flowers and leaves with Pumice Stone Distress marker. I brushed the clear Wink of the Stella glitter pen to watercolor with the Distress marker. It gives the card both watercolor and shimmery look. Finished the card by stamping "Happy Birthday" and white embossed it. Here is another look of the card:

Below are the closer looks of the flowers:

I also have this card to attend Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes:

Cardstock: Neenah, PTI
Stamps: Altenew
Ink Pads: Versamark
Others: white embossing powder, Distress marker, Wink of the Stella pen
