A Few Challenges

Hello!

I hope your week is going well.  The kids are on half term and spending a few days with their grandparents so life is a bit less hectic this week....which means that I have had time to make cards for a few challenges.

Here is a card for the current challenge over at Altenew:


I was inspired by the flowers, colours and gold elements in the inspiration photo and gold embossed some flowers from Henna Elements.  I coloured them with Festive Berries and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks and matted on dark brown cardstock.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle.


October challenge

Have you seen the amazing new release from Altenew - it is fantastic.  So many gorgeous stamp sets :)

Next up is a card that I made for the current challenge at Festive Fridays - I love all of the beautifully gift wrapped presents:



I used a gorgeous sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps and combined with a bow die.  I white embossed some dots from Winnie & Walter on the red cardstock at the back to mirror the dotty bow. 


Thanks as always for stopping by - I really appreciate your visit!

  6. Wow, you've had so many amazing cards lately. You must be able to sneak back into your craft room a bit more at the moment, which is brilliant for all of us followers!!! I totally agree about the new releases from Altenew, just amazing. Your card is beautiful and so well inspired by the photo. Love all the gold embossing with those colours. And your second card really is like a wrapped present. Crisp, modern and lots of white....love it!!!
