I do have several favorites only because I keep a list to look for when I have $!!! Hehehe I really like the BAF sets Morning GLory, Carnation and Aster. The leaf canopy adds sooo much to the background of a card and can be used with just a sentiment! My others are Hand picked Bouquet, Dandelion, Beautiful Heart Flower Vine and the wonderful Main Squeeze!! I was so excited to add to my collection with some of these and hoping to add the rest as cash allows :}

It boggles my mind how young a company Altenew is – considering what a huge impact it has had with some truly outstanding designs. The layered florals are without comparison, and this has been a stellar year – I loved the new sweet pea set, the leaf canopy, and the dandelion wishes, and am looking forward to adding more to my collection, including the nature snippets.
