Hi Stampers, It’s Alternate Monday day.  That means I am sharing a card taken from the blog hop that I participate in each Thursday. I am taking either the sketch or color challenge and making a second card that is close to or similar to the posted card from the hop.  I want to inspire you to get different looks for your card by mixing it up a bit by color and design.  Today I used the same layout, with a twist and changed the colors to give the card an “Alternate” look.

  • Attach this stack to the front of the card
  • Adhere your 3 flowers, with dimensionals and glue dots
  • Tuck in your leaves under the flowers and adhere with glue dots
  • Add a Textile  bow to the cluster of 2  flowers

The sentiment:
