Altenew 3rd Birthday Celebration

Hi everyone! 
Welcome to the My Sweet Petunia (Ilina Crouse here)!We are so excited that you can join us celebrating Altenew's 3rd anniversary! 
You should have arrived from Stephanie Klauck blog and will hop onto Emily Leiphart. And trust me you don't want to miss their amazing creations!!!!

The Altenew color layering sets work perfectly with the MISTI, and makes positioning so  easy and then you can mass produce many without having to worry about perfectly positioning your stamps every single time. 
For my card I used the Azalea stamp set. I had to make it pool blue (since it's my favorite color), I stamped the first flower with the MISTI, then using some masking paper I masked it and stamped the second flower. Then repeated the same process for the leaves.  Next I stamped the "celebrate" (we are celebrating here, right? ;))  from the Label Love set and trimmed it.  
I assembled my card and added some sequins and voila. 
Scroll down to watch the video how this card came to be ;) and for the blog hop details and the prizes.
