Just love your hand stitching, Virginia - adds the perfect touch to both cards!!

Congratulations, Linda W. (ScrappinBari), please leave me a comment with your e-mail address, so I can set up the prize ($15 gift card to Altenew store) for you. If the prize is not claimed by March 6, 11:59pm EST, another winner will be selected.

Of course, I can not part a post without sharing a card. LOL.
you are amazing #1

I have been itching to use this new (to me) Plaid stencil (Carta Bella).
I took a short cut by applying Altenew 4 Scoop Oval (also comes in Altenew 4 Scoops Mini.) over the stencil. With the partial stenciling, the Hibiscus Bouquet pops even more.

you ar amazing #2

As always, thank you for your ongoing support (comment, like over Facebook and Instagram, use my affiliate links (such as Altenew, Simon Says Stamp and Concord & 9th)!  Other than the monthly $15 Altenew giveaway, I hope to give out more prizes (such as this one here) very soon again.

Have a beautiful day!

So pretty, Virginia! Love how your stenciled background makes the flower pop. I've been meaning to do some stenciling on kraft since I watched Kristina do it not so long ago. Thanks for the reminder.

Simply lovely. Your colors are soft and lovely, the stencil background is so soft and beautiful, your flower pops and sure is lovely. Sequins and gold thread are the perfect touches.
