Altenew Fantasy Floral Dies and Blog Hop Winner

Hey everyone! 

I had so much fun working with the latest Altenew die release that I was inspired to pull out the Fantasy Floral 3D die set.  I picked this set up late last year, but hadn't gotten around to using it yet and it was time!

For the bottom layer of both flowers I didn't have the 'right' shade, so I used a lighter shade and added a bit of ink blending.  There are only three layers to these flowers so it's quite easy to put together.  

The leaves were both cut from a lighter and darker green color and then I assembled the pieces in a grid design over a piece of cardstock that I had dry embossed using the new Watercolor Stripes cover.  It's hard to see in the photos, but adds just the right bit of texture to the card.

The sentiment is from the Wild Hibiscus set.

A gold mat finished this off.  

Now, I owe you all a blog hop winner.

The lucky lady is....
