Using Altenew stamps... again

Hi all

Still playing the the Tim Holtz platform with my stamps and  I must say I am loving it so far. 

Another card using my Altenew stamps. I am enjoying exploring all the different colour combination and this red one looks beautiful in real life.  I am keeping a list of the colours I have used once I decide I like a colour combo, as I know I will forget what I have used  lol.
On the embossed background I  added a some Frosted glitterbitz to the center of the embossed flowers but it was quite hard to catch this in the photographs.
I went to a craft show at Sandown Park on Saturday.. well what a busy show that was. Create & Craft were filming there and there were a lot more exhibitors there this time round. The last time I attended was about 2 years ago it was ok but quite limited. I was very good and didn't spend too much. I added to my TH oxide collection and bought a SW die and some stamps from Honey Doo.    
I hope you all have a great week, thank you for stopping by.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

  1. Hi Maria, a gorgeous bloom and great colour combination used, I bet the background sparkles a lot in real life. Have a wonderful week... Megan

  2. A beautiful card Maria, lovely colours and I like how you’ve framed the image. I also have the Stamping Platfirm and I love it as it’s saved me a small fortune in not having to throw card away! I don’t own any Atlenew stamps myself but I can imagine how useful the platform would be. I’m pleased to heat that you enjoyed the show. Happy crafting, Sandra x

  3. Oh this is beautiful Maria, I love the red colour and your frame is gorgeous. I bought an Altenew stamp ages ago but have never yet used it, your beautiful design has inspired me to get it out and have a go.
    I love my Platform too, especially for detailed stamps, Kate x

  4. Gorgeous make, thanks for joining us for the Polkadoodles Blog Challenge.
