BEAUTIFUL DAY

Well, I'm finally getting some mojo back after being gone for three weeks and then just not being able to get in the card creating mood again.  Have had this new set from Altenew for awhile, so it was perfect for Darnell's NBUS challenge.

  
It's not that I don't have other NBUS, but this is the one I've mostly been dying to use.  I stamped the flower with the red inks from Altenew - also the leaves.  Then I just used my MISTI to stamp the black smaller leaves and flowers around the edge of the 3 3/4" x 5" piece and adhered that to a regular top folding card.  Added the colored flower, leaves and the sentiment and done!


Also have some good news to share - had entered a card in the Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights guest designer challenge and heard from Laurel Beard the other day that I was chosen as one of the designers.  Don't know yet when I'll have to do my card - probably not until early 2017 - but I'll let you know when.

All for now - thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.

  3. Saw you over at Darnell's and came to say Hi. I love your beautiful card. It's no wonder that you were itching to open this stamp set and get inky. You did such a lovely job.
