Altenew August Inspiration Challenge -- Take 3 & Share Your Altenew Love Video Contest

Today, I have a card to share for the Altenew August Inspiration Challenge:

This is actually the third card I've made for this challenge --
I can't help it -- I just love these colours!
You can find my first and second cards here and here.

Once again, I used my new Watercolour Wonder stamp set to make my card:

I stamped the blooms all over my front panel, leaving space at the bottom,
 in Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry and Ruby Red.
The leaves were added in Morning Frost.

I stamped the sentiment (from PTI's Spring Woods)
in versamark on a strip of black cardstock and heat embossed it in white.

So, I made a video the other day for the 
and I thought I'd share it here.
Sage graciously agreed to be my videographer. :)

Note: if the video won't play, you can see it here.

Thanks for looking!

Totally love everything about this post, Leigh! Of course your card is gorgeous (an awesome stamp set), but to hear your voice (and your Canadian accent) and see you was just too much fun. You and Sage are great partners in crime. I only own 3 Altenew inks, but I do love them. Thanks, NOT, for pointing out that I really do need them all. :)
