Brights & Pastels

 Hi there Crafty Friends! It's been a bit quiet on the card-making front of late as I've had visits from an old friend and my Daughter, so I've been out and about enjoying Autumn.

Today I managed to make a couple of cards for my fave challenges. 

I'm a bit obsessed with Altenew's Hill Blossom Stencil & die set. I decided these colours would pop with a black background and broke it up with the white layers. I've also used the Hummingbird from Altenew Dazzling Dahlias and a sentiment from Label Love. 

I've used softer colours for my next card, to fit the theme at The Flower Challenge..

The images were coloured with watered down Nuvo Shimmer Powder and I splattered a bit of ink on the 
de-bossed card front.
Stamps: Altenew Botanical Illustrations, Dazzling Dahlias
Embossing Folder: Altenew Intricate Tiles

I'm also sharing my card at the following:-

Happy Birthday to Brenda and Team
