Altenew August challenge : take 2

Hi there!

Just a quick hello to share a card I made before my 10 day break to visit my family in South-Africa. I didn't have time to take the pictures before I left... and seeing that it always take some time to get my mojo back after a break, I started off the week by taking photos ... getting back into creative mode gradually :)




My first take on the challenge focused on the colors only, this time I wanted to use flowers :


                                                                               






I used:

Challenges:

The flower challenge  ~ Background stamping.
Seize the birthday ~ Anything goes.



                          


Thanks for looking!

Have a great week ♥
Hannelie

Gorgeous card Hannelie ;-) I love that you stamped and embossed in copper, it gives the flowers a lovely vintage look and the sentiment and sequins are perfect. I love the whole design of this, very pretty.

Welcome back! I struggle to get back into crafting after a trip, my 'go to' is House Mouse, they always seem to give me a good kick start ;-)

thanks for joining us on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Such a pretty card with this set which I've barely touched since the first time I used it. I'm in love with the soft border you made. Very nice with the copper embossing and sequins. I hope you had a good trip and visit. You'll have your mojo back in no time!
