Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

Blog-hop-logo
Blog hop inspirationHurrah--it's time for the monthly PTI Blog Hop! The inspiration photo stumped me at first, but soon I came up with an idea.  I wanted to use the gray, but with PTI Background Basics: Medallions, instead of stripes. The inks I used are Memento Gray Flannel & Tuxedo Black.
I liked the idea of a bright flower with the gray, but changed it to the roses from PTI The Sweet Life stamped in Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst & Raspberry Fizz. The leaves are stamped in the same inks as the background & the flowers are covered in Wink of Stella.  I decided against splatters--I know, hard to believe--LOL--& simply embellished with clear sequins.  I'm also entering Anything Goes at SSS Wed & Pixies Snippets Playground.  Always tons of inspiration in the Blog Hops, so better get going.  
I'll leave you with this picture of hubby holding Fritz so I could take a picture of him with his birthday candles in a spoonful of peanut butter--pretty cute, huh?!
