Missing you Altenew

Have you ever got "lost" in your craft room and just plain old neglected some stamps.  Well, that is exactly what happened to me.  I think I forgot how much I love creating with Altenew stamps.  The flowers are really amazing to stamp with.  You start off thinking this can't be right and then by the end you get goose bumps and think I can't believe that I actually created this.  I forgot that feeling, but let me tell you, it is back on!

Here is my card for the Altenew color challenge and this is also getting entered in the less is more dry embossing challenge.  Let's talk about Debby Hughes card for a second.  I have no idea how she colored that flower, but WOW!!!!  I used a pti wood embossing plate (have done that in a LONG time).  I then busted out my Altenew and went to town.  The flower just comes together like a champ.  I realized I didn't have any of the green inks, so it took me some time to find the right combo with what I had here.  
I really loved creating this card.  In fact, I realized I need all of the new Altenew inks and many more stamp sets (we aren't even going to talk about the huge order I have sitting in my card).

It's a good life!

That embossing folder is so delicate, absolutely beautiful and very suitable for CAS embossing. Love your layout with the flowers and the contrast from the black sentiment. Thanks for joining us at Less Is More!

I love this Altenew set, and I've neglected mine too so must get that out again very soon. Love that subtle wood grain background, perfect paired with this gorgeous bloom.
Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
