Beautiful Day


  Today was a beautiful day.  Besides the weather being gorgeous, I got to play in my craft room most of the day!  Ok, my house really needs to be cleaned, but I got two loads of laundry done and created 4 cards for challenges -- yep, it's all about priorities :)  So, like I said, today was a beautiful day!


It only seemed appropriate to ink up this stamp set and matching dies that I've been wanting to play with from Altenew:  Beautiful Day.  These flowers just seem to come to life as each stamp is used to add dimension and depth -- I could make them all day! Thanks to my trusty MISTI, I got the stamps lined up pretty well (LOVE this tool!)  The background is an embossing folder from Anna Griffin.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
