Hello!

We are back with a picture theme challenge! And this month, the inspiration is from the United Kingdom. As many of you may know,  the Altenew team was at CHA-UK last June. It was mostly work, but we did manage to see some places during our stay there.

The following picture is from a store-front of a bakery (presumably) taken during a late night exploration.

From Places Abroad

 

 

This may seem a bit unusual, but there are plenty of elements/colors in this picture to use as inspiration :)

The following card was inspired by the lacy decoration on the cake:

August 2015 challenge

To create the decorative front, a flower stamp from the Striped Florals set was embossed repeatedly in white on clear vellum. The embossed piece was then trimmed with a pair of scissors, and wrapped around a Walnut cream card stock (Bazzill) which was cut to the size of the card front. The sentiment (Scribbled Flowers) was stamped on a piece of white card stock, a whole was punched at its end, and then threaded through a brown ribbon. Finally, the ribbon was wrapped around and tied into a small bow. The finished piece was then glued to a card base.
