Altenew March Challenge: From Places Abroad-France

WOW!! my order from Altenew arrived SUPER fast! I'm so glad it did because I've had this idea floating around in my head and I was anxious to see if it would work out.
I used the new Crisp Ink Blush and the BIRCH LAND stamp set, designed by MARIKA, to created a woods-y Background. It turned out beautifully! The small branches/limbs in the set add extra realism to the tree trunks and makes the BG more interesting.

This card is a  reflection of Cherry and Apple Blossoms I have in my memories of time spent in Paris, over 27 years ago.   It was a Gloriously beautiful Spring that year!
Altenew Stamp sets used:
Birch Land
Botanical Garden
Wild Hibiscus
Bejeweled

I made it a shaker with my favorite PPP sequins...SWEETPEA mix:)

I encourage you to stop by the gallery for the Altenew March Challenge: From Places Abroad-France, it is full of INCREDIBLE projects with a French flare!
Thanks for stopping here!

Altenew is also having a card drive celebrating Parents
