PAINTED FLOWERS

The photo for this week's Inspired by All the Little Things really is so gorgeous, I just had to make a card.  In fact, every week they have such lovely inspiration photos - I just don't always get around to creating something.


Since Altenew is celebrating their 3rd anniversay, I decided to use the first flower stamp set I ever bought from them - it's still one of my favorites and it has been a bit neglected lately.  I used some of their striped paper from the Reflections kit to mimic the stripes in the model's cape.  Then just used colors and the vertical design from the photo - added little raindrops too.  There is Spectrum Noir on just the flowers for some shiny prettiness!

I don't know how I was chosen by Altenew to receive this darling stamp set, but it came in the mail quite by surprise a week or so ago.  Love it!! 


So will add this to Inspired by All...and also Altenew's anniversary celebration.

Thanks for visiting today and love to read your kind comments.

  4. You're the second person I know of who got their own personalized stamp set in their Altenew order--so special! Does make me wish I'd put in an order, but have GOT to use what I already bought from them. Your card is stunning--love every single thing about it, Betty! Hoping everything is on schedule for tomorrow--sending big hugs & positive thoughts!
