Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Sunburst Azalea Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

 Hello friends!

It's time to share another exciting Altenew Craft-A-Flower with you.
We are celebrating this month's Craft-A-Flower Sunburst Azalea with a blog hop!


If you arrive from the blog of Terri Koszler, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. 

This die set is easy to use and fun to line up. I like to create my own blended paper.  And that's what I did with the petals and leaves.

I applied several colors with Gel Plate. The flower colors are pink, coral and red.

For the leaves, I used my paper from sprayed ink. I love all shades of green and here I used them all.

Since the flowers and leaves took much of the focus, I'd still like to add some interest to the background.  The Woven Basket 3D Embossing Folder came to the rescue.

On top of that, I was able to stamp the sentiment "happy birthday" (Sweet Pea Stamp Set). Hope you like what I created! Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win, too!

Love this flower. It is one of my favorites. I haven't tried using Gel Press but it does not mean I won't in the future. I love the embossing folder you used. I am adding this to my wish list to buy later. Very pretty card.
