The Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop with Altenew

Hello friends! And welcome to the Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop with Altenew!
The purpose of this hop is to raise awareness of all the challenge blogs
out there.  There is lots of inspiration and also prizes to be won.  The graphic shows the blogs participating and a list is on the Altenew blog.


Seize the Birthday is one of the challenge blogs participating and I am happy to join with Seize the Birthday.

I used 3 different Altenew sets for my card - Sweet Flowers and dies (flowers), Peony Bouquet (leaves) and Birthday Greetings for the sentiment. I colored the images with Copics and SU Blends. The flowers are mounted with foam tape.  I also used the Altenew Grid Stencil and Hickory Smoke DOI for the background on my white panel.  I used a fan brush and water DOI to splatter the background but the splatters are so fine you can hardly see them.  I was just going to mat the white panel but then I tried angling the two panels and I liked it better.  The green mat is SU Wild Wasabi (retired).  

I will also link to The Flower Challenge - use a die
Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful day.
Happy Stamping,
