A Year in Review Blog Hop from Altenew

Hello friends!
This is my 2nd post for the day.
For Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, please scroll down or click here.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have a special blog post to share today...
s
 It gives me a tremendous pleasure to be part of the Altenew "A Year in Review" Blog Hop. The guests are invited to share a few of our favorite Altenew projects in 2016. If you are coming by from the sweet and talented May Sukyong Park's blog, you are in the right place!

I actually created a new project for this hop.
I wanted to create a super colorful card....
Since we are in the middle of a freezing cold winter in my part of the world and what better way to brighten up the mood?

COLORS!
rise above

I gathered my sprays and mist and created my own color paper. With the stamps and die combo from Bamboo Rose, this actually took little time to create.

I had so much fun arranging/assembling the butterflies, as you can imagine.

Do you love this? I thought the sentiment from Painted Encouragement is spot on.
I was invited to share my favorite Altenew projects in 2016. I had a hard time narrowing down to my Top 10 Favorites. 😁 For your easy viewing, I have grouped them in the following  with Inlinkz.
 The technique used is described below the photo. You can click on the card to find out more about it. Quite a few of them have included a video!
Please head over to Altenew for all the details and join the hop. 


😍 PRIZES 😍
After the blog hop, Altenew will give away a $30 gift certificate to 6 winners. They will be randomly selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop.
