Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Cute Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is
Fantastic Florals 
This week we are showcasing Altenew Products this week. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I decided to use the Lacy Scrolls from Altenew, first of all I had to make a mask because I knew I wanted to some leaves behind my flower. I use a zig glue pen to make my mask sticky, once the blue glue turns clear its because repositional.

Once that was done I made my background with just the leaves and added a bit of blended green using Inkylicious Ink Duster they are much easier on my poorly hand then a small blending tool. Don't panic if the hairs come out they are the loose ones and check you inkpad after use to make sure a sneaky one has been left behind.

I made my frame using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Ovals but before I place it over my flower I stamped the leaves using the mask I made. Sentiment is a Thankful Heart from Simon Says Stamp.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in

Gorgeous card Debby, the flower is so pretty in the oval frame and I love the leafy background too :-) I have some of those brushes and haven't used them yet, I will have to give them a go :-)

This is really pretty Debby and I love the Altenew flower and leaves shown off beautifully in the stitch oval frame, and the bit of added inking over those lovely leaves in the background is perfect. A gorgeous card. x
