Painted Flowers

I'm sharing 2 cards using the same sketch and supplies today.  A friend asked me to make a special card for a friend of his, and I liked how it turned out so much that I had to make another one, adding gingham to the mix.  Here's that one first:

Painted Flowers & Gingham

supplies: white cardstock, gingham from Simple Stories Wood & Gingham Basics 12" pad, Altenew Painted Flowers, Altenew Puffy Heart and Purple Wine from Rose Petal mini set, Warm Sunshine  and Sunkissed inks, Hero Arts Green Hills and Grass inks, sentiment from (retired) Simon/Mama Elephant Summer Garden, Winnie & Walter Noelle scalloped cutaway, Simon Stitched Circle die, adhesive foam squares, Tonic Detail Scissors

I bought the big Wood & Gingham paper pad for the wood planking papers, which I will use as my backgrounds for taking pictures, but the ginghams in it are a lovely bonus!

And here's the first card, with a matching envelope:

For Betty (David)

supplies: white and lavendar cardstock, Altenew Painted Flowers, Altenew Lavender Fields and Deep Iris from Shades of Purple mini set, Warm Sunshine  and Sunkissed inks, Hero Arts Green Hills and Grass inks, same dies and sentiment as above, lavendar and yellow pearls

These Painted Flowers were the first Altenew set I bought, and I love and use it just as much now years later!  They are easy to line up the layers, and easy to cut out by hand, which I almost always do, but they have matching dies, for those of you who prefer them.

Hope these brighten your day!  Have a great weekend!
