I love the PTI Blog Hops & today's inspiration photo is just beautiful! The MIM video by Danielle showing how to do paper casting also intrigued me, so that's where I started.  It was very easy to die cut the bath tissue layers with a circle die--not sure I needed to do 1/2 at a time, in fact.  
I used the little wreath from Tag-Its #3 & when the cast dried I stamped in Ripe Avocado.  It's layered onto blue felt die cut with a Mat Stack 3.  I stamped the sentiment in StazOn, added the bow & mounted it to a little gray card. I'll be back later with my other project. Enjoy the hop! SSS Wed is Anything Goes, so I'll add this to the gallery.

Lovely card Greta. I have a bunch of the paper casting dried; that was the fun part, casting the tissue paper ;) It's just waiting for me to do something with them. I'm a little nervous about stamping on them, but you gave me the inspiration I need to give it a go. Thanks!
