Hugs and Happy Thoughts

I won an Altenew challenge a little while ago, and chose this amazing Beautiful Day stamp set as my prize.  I had to wait a bit for it, as it is very popular, but that wait was so worth it!  Here's my first card using the wonderfully detailed flower:

Happy Thoughts

supplies: white and black cardstock, dotty panel from a Teresa Collins Carolina Breeze paper pad, Altenew Beautiful Day stamps, 3 shades of yellow (Ranger Conch Shell, Altenew Warm Sunshine, and Wplus9 Wild Mango) and 2 shades of green ink (Hero Arts Green Hills and Grass), black enamel dots

Yellow roses are my favorites, so I had to try these first in that color.  I love the wonderful detail that these multi-step stamps can give to a person who is coloring challenged - all the shading is already done for me!

One more shot........

Hope all you blizzard people are staying inside and crafting today!  We haven't had a single flake here in NE Ohio - I'm so jealous of all of you!
