Altenew April Inspiration Challenge

I've been playing with my Altenew stamps lately and what better place to show them off than at the Altenew Inspiration Challenge.  This is a new challenge to me but I'll be back again.

The flowers are from Vintage Flowers stamped in Altenew Ink with leaves from Peony Bouquet.  I put them on a kraft background that has been embossed with a mosaic ef.  Sentiments are often a bugaboo for me but I think using the SSS word die and accompanying sentiment works fine for this layout.

It's a rather gloomy day today so I think some crafting will perk me up.   How about you?


  1. Gray and gloomy here, too, Bobby ... but this beauty just cheered me up!!! So pretty! LOve that dark blue ink!!

  2. Beautiful take on the inspiration photo, Bobby! Your embossed background really makes those gorgeous flowers pop...Love how you used the color palette, too!

  3. That embossed background looks gorgeous with the pretty flowers and the sentiment. It's almost got a sheen to it, at least on my screen. This is so pretty. What a wonderful card. Have a great weekend. Bev

  4. Beautiful arrangement and combination of different stamp sets, Bobby! The blue flower cluster on the embossed kraft looks so elegant!

  5. That texture-y background captures the inspiration background brilliantly, Bobby ... that lovely cascade of blue hued blooms is so lovely against it! Hugs, Anita :)

  6. Oh my, Bobby! Those vibrant blue flowers against your yummy textured background has me swooning! Sooooo pretty! Inspiration photo translated wonderfully!
