Altenew Birthday

I've got a card today for the October Altenew challenge.  I was inspired by the colours, flowers and butterflies.  I tried a couple of different gold embossing powders for the flower but I don't know if they're old or what but they didn't melt well and mostly ended up rubbing off of the card.  So I went with this Zing powder in Butter.  I really like how it pops against the turquoise and contrasts with the Cherry Cobbler colour.  That's it for me.  Hope you have a fabulous day!

I LOVE the line stamping on colored card base! Looks fab!

I have a couple of powders that are like that too - not that I've had them that long, but I guess they were on the shelf a while first. The butter is terrific, though, so it was meant to be!

I'm with Jessi -- the butter ep colour is perfect the way it pops against the card base! So pretty, Jen.

This is so pretty--love the yellow with the turquoise and that sentiment in red.

That flower looks absolutely gorgeous, and great job on using a blue card base! Thank you very much for playing along at Altenew's October challenge!

I love it in Butter! Such a soft and sweet look as compared to a gold.
