`Altenew Freebie

And finally, .......
Yep back again to share a card for this week's challenge over at ATSM. This week it is our challenge where -


I always find inspiration for this challenge difficult, what do I use as inspiration? Well in the end I made this.

I got a freebie in this month's Simply Cards and Papercraft mag from Altenew, it was a layering die set, just like their layered stamps. After playing around with some scraps on Friday I thought I would make a card. The latest challenge at AAA is Die Cuts only, so I went with a completely die cut card, right down to the sequins! Shades of pink for the rose bloom and a grey Happy Birthday die cut from X-Cut sit in a raised frame on White linen effect card stock, so a second entry at Altenew. The sequins were cut with a small Avery Elle circle die in hammered silver card and shaped with a ball tool.
Pop over to the ATSM blog and check out the rest of the DT have come up with for your inspiration.


The snow arrived this morning but not too much, the ewes and lambs got a sugar dusting!

The weather is staying frosty with more snow forecast later in the week.

I'm joining in over at:-


Create something for a loved one or simply use a Pink / Red colour scheme!
