From Places Abroad take 3

Hello there - TGIF and end of term!!!

I've been having a play with some new stamps from Altenew. It's the Vintage flower set and there are so many possibilities. For this card I decided to stamp some blossom, since you Northern Hemisphere peeps are celebrating Spring.

I was inspired by the 3rd photo in the Altenew March challenge and got the idea to stamp on pattern paper from Virginia. You can see her amazing card here.

The branch and flowers are from Altenew's Vintage Flower, the leaves are from Vintage Rose and the sentiment is from Label Love.
This was made with a NBUS stamp set soooo I am entering this in Darnell's 4th NBUS challenge.
ETA: I'm also entering this in the Color Throwdown Challenge.

 I have 2 more cards to share, using the same stamps and different paper.

I'm entering this card in the Simon Monday Challenge - One Stamp , Many ways. If you look closely, I've used a light ink to stamp some of the flowers as part of the background and then in the bright colours to be the highlight image.  Also entering the Simon Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes.

ETA: I'm entering my tag card in the Tag You're it challenge - thanks Nancy!
