Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Winter Wonder!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

We have a new sponsor, Altenew, for this challenge!  A randomly selected participant will receive a stamp set of choice from the Altenew shop, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

This was my first time working with Altenew stamps, and they are just lovely! I chose something really different from anything else in my (sizeable) stamp collection, Persian Motifs. For this notecard - 3x4" - I heat embossed the images, filling them in and shading with a silver Wink of Stella pen before fussy cutting. Though they look quite shiny here, I embellished with matte silver sequins so the sequins didn't compete with the amazing images! 

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!
