The Challenge #34 {Yellow, Orange & Green}

Hello and welcome to The Challenge! Every week I host a new challenge on my blog and this week we have a fun and summery "Colour Challenge" to inspire you! We hope it does!

For my card, I decided to use a stamp set from Verve called "Kind Words" and I paired it with the "Vintage Roses" set from Altenew. I have been watercolouring a lot lately and I decided to add some water to the floral images. I am playing along with a couple of other challenges today! Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-Let's Get Sentimental, Altenew's Tunisia Inspiration Challenge and Verve Floral Inspiration Challenge

I added some neutral twine to my card and used a background die from MFT Stamps and their Stitched Rectangle Die to mimic the design in the Altenew Inspiration photo. I thought the background die looks like the inspiration and texture. I hope it worked!

This month we are honoured to have Sandie Munro with us as our Featured Designer! I absolutely LOVE her CAS (clean and simple) design.
