PTI Blog Hop


2-Shades-of-Pink-Bouquet    

I love the PTI Blog Hops, but couldn't manage to get a card made ahead of time.  Finally finished it up this morning.  I loved all the color choices--check them out if you haven't. I wanted to include the pink's in this scheme, but didn't like any of the ink colors in my collection with my substitutes for Orange Zest & Summer Sunrise--crazy considering how many ink pads I own!  Finally gave up & this meets Nicole's suggestion to try something outside my comfort zone.  Choosing a floral stamp set was pretty easy since I wanted to try out the Rosie Posie Step 2 set.  Isn't it a wonderful effect?  To soften the white of my Mega Mat Stack 3, I used the lightest ink stamped off with an image from Quilled Elegance.  The sentiment is from The Sweet Life, another favorite set.  I added a touch of Stickles to the blossoms & popped up the top one.  Intended to add some twine or ribbon, but forgot before gluing down the pieces & I didn't want it on top.  I'm also entering the challenge at A Passion for Papertrey.  Enjoy the hop--always so much inspiration.  Thanks for taking some of your time to see what I came up with.  Enjoy the holiday weekend if you're celebrating in the USA as we honor those who serve to keep us free.

  15. Hello Greta
    The colour palette creates so much drama and activity, your card in the Green is the perfect Bg choice; keeping it simple so that the main focus is on the beautiful bouquet. A gorgeous card.
