Altenew August Challenge: From Places Abroad - United Kingdom

Here is Altenew August Challenge inspiration photo:

I love the whole setting on the table, especially the gold frosted cake and pastel macaroons. So, I decided to give my stamped flowers a little yummy frost - I must be hungry when I got this idea. Here is the card I made for this challenge:

I stamped the flowers and leaves from Golden Garden set with lilac and green inks. Then, I stamped the outlines with black Versafine ink pad and embossed with clear embossing powder. For the frost, I mixed the Texture Paste with Dusty Concord Distress ink to make the lilac paste and mixed the Texture Paste with Mowed Lawn Distress ink to make the leaf green paste. Then, I use the small plastic knife to spread the frost onto flowers and leaves. The greeting "Thank You" is from Label Love set and I attached it with foam tape. For the lilac stripe border, I cut a piece of pattern acetate (from We R Memory Keepers) and attach it on the right to make the card more interesting. Below is a closer look of the frost:
