When I was deciding what Altenew product to use on my card, I couldn't resist grabbing their, Beautiful Day stamp set! I absolutely love this set and it's probably my most used floral set. That's saying a lot because I ADORE coloring floral stamps!



I used Zig Markers to color the flowers and added a sentiment from Altenew's, Happy Bloom set. A few sequins finish off the card.

I want to wish Altenew a very Happy Birthday/Anniversary! I hope you have many more years of inspiration and creating beautiful products for all of us to enjoy!

Next up on the hop is my talented friend, Isha Gupta.  

Don't forget tomorrow is day 2 of the hop, so you'll be able to enjoy a ton more celebrating and inspiration! Yay!

Annalisa said...

My favorite part of these bloghops is seeing the favorite products of designers. Sometimes they make me look at a stamp set in a new way, sometimes they remind me to use a stamp set that I love, but it's always fun and always makes for a special card. Thanks for sharing this with us and being a wonderful part of this community.
