Altenew June Inspiration Challenge

I saw this wonderful challenge over at Altenew and had to play along.  Here is how I was inspired by their photo.

I picked a beautiful stamp set by Altenew called Peony Bouquet.  I adore this flower!  The sentiment is also from Altenew and is called Painted Greetings.  The background stamp is from My Favorite Things and is called Lace.  I embossed it in white on Tropical Teal card stock.  Thanks for coming by to look!

The Recipe:
Altenew Peony Bouquet, Painted Greetings
MFT Lace background stamp
GKD Fine Detail White EP
Spellbinders Standard Circles and Scalloped Circles
MME enamel dots


  1. Altenew stamps are so much fun to use. This is a great example of how professional you can make a card. You took the Teal and really when with it. That lace background is outstanding and looks like real lace. Of course those gorgeous peony flowers.

  2. You achieved what I was trying to achieve with my card, but couldn't figure out how to do it. And that was to color the flowers to look like white with the yellow in the middle. You did it perfectly. LOVE your take on the challenge, that background is stunning. Just gorgeous - in fact the whole card id.

  3. Absolutely STUNNING! The embossing is a perfect backdrop for your gorgeous peonies!!! Your colors are spot on! This takes my breath away (in a good way!) GASP!

  4. I agree, this is absolutely STUNNING!!Love the embossed lace background and those gorgeous flowers.

  5. Beautiful card.I love your flowers


  6. Love this card Sharyn. The lace background is lovely and your flowers are colored so pretty. I love that stamp.
