Thank you so much to everyone at The Flower Challenge for selecting my card as a winner at their recent Birthday Challenge. I was thrilled at this unexpected honour.
Hello and welcome
We’re back with the new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers – Anything Goes with Dies – October . As always, anything goes in this challenge. So, I hope you’ll find time in your busy life to join in the fun this month!
W0w! It’s hard to believe we’re in October already!!
I made this card for some special friends.
I started by stamping Altnew – Hello Gorgeous image in Distress ink and watercoloured using Distress Inks before fussy cutting.
The background panel was cut using Altnew – Pegboard Canvs Cover Die and ink blended with Distress inks. Spiced Marmalade was used to ink the triangle shape. The panel was then sprinkled with water and blotted up to give some interest.
The Sizzix Banner dies were used to cut the kraft frame.
The flowers were then added to the triangle frame and layered on the front panel.
The sentiment is from Altnew – Fragile Foliage set and fussy cut.
Time to head over to our blog to check out the great work by the rest of the Design Team!
I look forward to seeing what you create this month!
Thanks so much for taking the time to visit. I love to read your comments.
Have a good day, stay safe and wishing you a very Happy New Year!

Fabulous Helen, what a wonderful background, it’s so versatile!
Thanks again Therese!! Take care! 🙂
Absolutely gorgeous ❤️ I love the altenew dies and they look fabulous. The way you’ve colored the whole thing with shadows and brights they look so real.
Thanks so much Dhruvika! I really appreciate your very kind comments. This was the first time I have used the altnew cover die and was thrilled with the way it looks. Stay safe! 🙂
Helen, this card is stunning! I really love the beautiful flowers, colored perfectly, and the background die is really cool! Love it!! Hope you have a great weekend!
PS. I don’t know if I have said this to you before but my older daughter lives in Brisbane! She emigrated to Australia 10 years ago and loves it. I keep my hopes up that someday we can go visit her but we need to get past this little pandemic first! LOL
I really appreciate your very kind comments Debbie! Won’t it be wonderful when we can all travel safely again. Amazing you have a connection to Brisbane!! Where abouts does she live? Wouldn’t it be incredible if she lived near me!! 🙂 We all love in hope of a time of peace and without restrictions. Stay safe! 🙂

Wow! You have certainly made my day Catherine!! Thanks so much. I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Stay safe! 🙂 xxx
Your flowers are amazing and I love how you have used that die for the background and not worried about whether the little dots were in or out. It is a great effect, but I know if it were me I would have had to have them all out or all in, wish I wasn’t like that! xx
Ha! Ha!! I was being very rash Hilary!! I was always an all or nothing too!!! But after seeing other die cuts left in, I decided to give it a try and liked it, so….! Funny how we pen oursleves in!!!
