Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop with Altenew

Hello! And welcome to the Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop
with Altenew!
The purpose of this hop is to raise awareness of all the challenge blogs
out there. Isn't that great? Love the idea of knowing what's available.

The Double D Challenge blog has been invited to join the hop, 
and I'm so excited to bring you some inspiration
from the Double D team!

I was so excited when I hear that the Double D team was invited to the hop. I had a hard time deciding what Altenew stamp I was going to use. Finally chose Beautiful Day! 

For this card, I used the Altenew stamp Beautiful Day. I have the die as well but did not use it for this card. Instead, I used Altenew Bold Alphabet Dies for the word HI. I thought it would be fun to die cut the sentiment right into the colored flowers. I did cut several layers of that die with black cardstock to make the letters "pop". After coloring, I used white gesso to splatter the front of this card. 

$250 in total prizes! To celebrate this fantastic blog hop, Altenew is giving away $25 gift certificates to TEN lucky winners. Winners will be chosen at random from the comments left on any of the blogs listed below and will be announced on the Altenew blog on September 5th, 2021.
