Love the card created with a FABULOUS floral set called Perennial Beauty. This set is on my wishlist with hopes for near future to add to my collection.
Congratulations, Carolyn! Please contact me at becr8ive2@gmail.com and I can get the prize set up for you. And guess what, Carolyn, since it's your favorite, we are going to dig in some more about this  Perennial Beauty.

 Perennial Beauty Stamp & Die is truly awesome as the die cuts perfectly. 

for you-001

Since the hibiscus is quite large, I decided to die cut the red one and then mount it with the purple one together in one piece. Not only this saves a bit of space, it also looks more polished and less bulky. If you see the following photo, it would make a lot of sense!?

for you

For the background, I actually stamped one of the hibiscus lightly with my favorite green ink (Frayed Leaf). I then added the splatter with Altenew Shimmer Spray Forest Glade and Green Leaf.

I have yet to share my how-to with this Color-layering Stenciled card...I did not forgot. Thanks for sticking around. I will share it soon as soon as I am able to. 
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Geez, this is another stunner. Brilliantly embellished your card but the star off the show is that glorious hibiscus. Fabulously showcased against your subtle background.
