Seize the Birthday Is Joining the Altenew Blog Hop

 Seize the Birthday Blog is participating in the Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop....Go over and check it out...they have prizes up for grabs. 

Here is my card using Altenew's Peony Bouquet Stamps and die bundle set.  This is my first time using this set and I love how it turned out.  I love Altenew's stamp sets.
I stamped the outline and the darkest shading in SU Coral Cameo, then Crisp Canteloupe on X-Press It Blending CS and finally sponged Blush Blossom over the white areas.  The leaves are stamped in SU Old Olive and sponged with Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz.  The sentiment is from SU Simply Sketched and the frame is MFT Stitched Circle Frames.   The frame and scalloped mat, MFT Blueprints 20 die, are cut from a scrap of coral CS.  The frame and the flower are mounted with foam tape.  The woodgrain DSP is from We R Memory Keepers Typecast 12x12 pad.

Check out all the fabulous cards our designers over at Seize the Birthday have made with Altenew Stamps and check out Altenew's blog hop.  You will be inspired and you could win a prize.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
