{Altenew} Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory Release + Giveaway

This is my second post of the day.
If you're looking for my Technique Tuesday
Release Day post, please click HERE.


Altenew has unveiled another Build-A-Flower set today and this month's Morning Glory is brilliant! In fact, my husband raved about these blooms and he rarely says that much about any card I make so that officially means this the best Build-A-Flower set yet. Oh, and his mom is getting this card for Mother's Day. ;) 



Morning Glories come in a variety of colours but the most common ones are deep pink, violet and royal blue. I chose the Rose Petal, Shades of Purple and Glacier Caves oval ink sets to represent those colours and they're represented from the top down on my card. The top two flowers are the same stamp and have four layers, which makes use of all four colours in Altenew's ink sets.




The smaller flower is only three layers but has an attached stem and leaves, whereas the larger flower is on its own. There is separate a long stem and a single layered leaf for endless possibilities but my favourite stamp in this set is the curly vine! It adds so much to the group of flowers and is a great accent.

GIVEAWAYS
Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or the Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win. Three winners will be announced on the card blog and three winners will be announced on the scrapbook blog on May 6, 2018.

In addition, I'm also giving away a $20 gift certificate to the Altenew Store! Please leave a comment here on this post by 11:59pm EST on May 4th. I will announce my winner here on May 5, 2018.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love how you managed to make these look pastel. I'm not sure if it's a function of the ink colors you chose or putting them on the light grey cardstock, but this card has a gorgeous, soft look to it. Thanks for sharing!
