Sending Hugs

First time using this Altenew set and I loves it.  Lots of little spriggy bits I was able to use to make my own arrangement.  Nice!

I started out coloring the large flower (camellia?).  I fussy cut that out after adhering it to a second piece of cardstock to make it sturdier.  I next stamped out a few sprigs and colored them.  Love the combo.  I wasn't initially satisfied with the green so went back and added some G07 to give it a little more pop.  The banner hides my initial sentiment placement.  I just didn't like it so covered up the ugly and curved it out.  I am so into adding a bit of 3D into my cards lately--okay, you've not seen them yet but you will.  Promise.  The flower is popped up on foam for even more dimension.  A clean and layered card makes me happy!

Oh!  The background is embossed with the PTI linen texture plate.  Definitely one of my desert island craft supplies!  LOL
