Altenew Build-A-Garden: Magnificent Branch Release Blog Hop Giveaway ($200 total prizes)

Welcome to Altenew’s new Build-A-Garden: Magnificent Branch Blog Hop.

If you’re following along on the hop, you must have come from the talented Hussena Calcuttawala. If you’d like to start at the beginning of the hop start at Altenew’s Blog.

I’m excited to be sharing my card with you. I started by heat embossing the Magnificent Branch using Altenew’s Rose Gold embossing powder.

I then used the coloring stencil to color the flower using a combination of purples for the flowers and aquas for the leaves, all inks from Altenew. Finally I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and mounted it on gold cardstock to match the embossing.
