Cherish

 
Morning.  I am having so much fun stamping with my new stamp set from Altenew that I wanted to make another card...something sunny, summery.  This is what I came up with.
The hexagon background is a stamp from Hero Arts.  Love the graphic hexagons.  I inked it up with Distress inks (Mustard Seed, Squeezed Lemonade, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade), sprayed with water and stamped.  I was left with a great blend of the colours. 
I wanted to highlight the sentiment, so I cut the bkg. piece and mounted it on either side of the sentiment.  The roses were stamped with the same orange shades of Distress inks and cut out then mounted with pop dots. 
 
I am also including my card in these challenges:
 
Seize the Birthday- SEEING YELLOW
 
Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES
 
Crafting When We Can- BRIGHT COLOURS
 
Fusion- BEACH HOUSE 
 
 
 
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
 
Supplies:  stamps- Altenew, Technique Tuesday, Hero Arts/ Distress inks/ Memento bl/ pop dots/ Mini Mister
