Painted Flowers "Hello" card - Muse Challenge #160

I am involved in a love affair ...

with a stamp set!

I can't seem to get enough of the Altenew stamp set "Painted Flowers" that I borrowed from a friend in order to create a card for a challenge with a blogging friend (previous post). I spent most of my weekend crafting with it, as I know that, too soon, I will have to give it back.

I wonder if she'll accept my "excuse" that one of my dogs ate it?? Ahhh, memories of school ... LOL

Seems that this set is sold out in many of my favourite crafting haunts (no surprise there). So I guess for now, I'll enjoy my limited time with this set until I can get my inky fingers on my own set.

I used the sketch/inspiration card over at Muse Challenge as a jump start for my card, creating a similar LO with a framed panel and sentiment located at the bottom as seen on Michele's beautiful card here (couldn't resist playing along with my friend over at I Card Everyone) - :-)

And this is the card I came up with:

I kept the sentiment general so that I can use this card for any occasion, and used a lovely frame die set that I ordered recently (and love!).

The floral panel is popped up on the embossed panel. I glued together 3 of the sentiment diecuts and adhered it to the floral panel with pop dots as well. A few iridescent sequins finish the card off.

I'll have more Altenew Painted Flowers cards coming ... I hope you don't tire of them (as I know I won't tire of making cards with this lovely set!)

Happy Monday & enjoy your week.
