Altenew Inspiration Challenge

My friend Virginia is now on Altenew's Design Team and she is hosting this month's Inspiration Challenge there!  I turned once again to my favorite Altenew flower set and used Virginia's colors.

Altenew March color challenge

supplies: white cardstock, Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die, Altenew Painted Flowers and Painted Greetings stamps, Paper Sweeties flower sequins to match

I love these bright colors - and it's a fun change from my usual pastels.  I thought this sentiment was the perfect one to go with them, as was the wonky stitches framing; sprinkling on lots of sequins reinforces the celebration theme, too.  I didn't plan it this way, but this looks like a shot from above of these lovely ladies dancing!

Here's Virginia's fun inspiration photo, taken from her travels:


And, since flowers are my favorite motif, I'm also entering my card into The Flower Challenge.
