Floral Hugs

Hello, friends! Another long overdue post from me. I'm working away from home this week ... and dropping all my balls! :) Clearly, juggling is not my thing.

This is a card I made for the Card Chain Challenge which is now hosted by Gail in Norway. For the September Card Chain Challenge I made a card for Robyn in Australia using Altenew stamps based on this colour swatch:

The stamps for this card came from Altnew's Vintage Flowers set. The inks are a mix of Ranger Dye inks, Ranger Archival inks and Lawn Fawn inks. I honestly cannot remember what I used as I made this made a couple of months ago and, very cleverly, failed to make of not of the ingredients.

I heat embossed the a greeting by Clearly Besotted Say It In Stye (retired) onto a piece of velum and laced it between the flowers. The red blings are probably unnecessary but hey ... keeping it CAS means nothing to me! LOL

Crafting By Design Oct 12: Add A Sentiment
