Bold Blossom for a Friend

Just realized today that thanks to my friend, Cat, I can enter the Ellen Hutson Mix-It Up Challenge with Altenew. Cat sent me some Bold Blossom die cuts until I can get my own & the Altenew stamp set Simple Shapes was part of a prize package I won last year & hadn't yet opened.  I used Distress Inks spun sugar & milled lavender with the solid & open circles to make the background panel. Then I sprayed it with Glitter Dust for sparkle. 
The die cuts were embossed 3 times with Zing! Charcoal embossing powder.  The lined strip was made using one of the open 4 sided stamps in the set with Memento Gray Flannel.  I love the little Teresa Collins stickers & finished off with clear PPP sequins from another sweet friend, Rosemary.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  5. Ok.... I'm going to need you to NOT post gorgeous creations like these with that die. Between you and Betty I'm being so tempted. My wallet says NO but my heart says yes. ;) Seriously, though I love the sweet glittery polka dots and the beautiful bloom.

  15. OH, what a BEAUTY this is, Greta!
    Everything about it caught my eye.

    I've been trying to get some of those sweet PPP clear sequins in 4mm & 6mm, but have been unsuccessful. They are ALWAYS out-of-stock. If & when they do become available, I will purchase multiple packages of them. Ha!
