Color Throwdown #338- Celebrate!!

Happy Wednesday and Happy Hump Day!! My week's one day short as I am spending Friday and Saturday at copic coloring classes with Debbie Olsen... excited and hoping I won't embarrass myself too much :)

This week's colors are brought to us by Broni...

Isn't the bunny and bear adorable!!

Here's my card...

I played with some new Altenew stamps/dies. The Parisian motif was stamped with versamark onto watercolor paper, die cut with the coordinating die (did you know Altenew came out with dies to match some of their sets... LOVE) and then watercolored using SU and Distress Inks.HA-- I probably need some watercoloring classes too!! It was layered onto a stitched die from Lil Inkers which was layered over a die cut using SSS Piestra Tile. Those flag banners were made with my "go to" MFT flag stax. The sentiment is from Altenew's Label Love.
