Hugs and Happy Thoughts

I wanted to throw my hat in the ring for Altenew's April Inspiration challenge.  The colors are pleasing together, and here's what I came up with:

supplies: white cardstock, Altenew Vintage Flowers, stamped Altenew Buttercream, Warm Sunshine,  Sapphire, Persian Blue, and Lagoon inks, sentiment from Altenew Beautiful Day, Tim Holtz Mesh stencil with blueprint sketch and lucky clover distress inks

I blended 2 distress inks through the stencil, overlapping them in the center.  Then I arranged my flowers, leaves, and sentiment on top, and popped the panel above a white card base.  I especially like the way the colors blended for the leaves, using these multi-step stamps!

Here's our inspiration photo from Sveta:

Thanks for popping by!
