Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

Hurrah--it's time for the PTI January Blog Hop! The inspiration is so gorgeous I made my card days ago. Wouldn't you love to have one of these cookies?!  I combined shades of red & pink for the bouquet of roses from PTI The Sweet Life using PTI Lovely Lady, Memento Love Letter & Memento Rhubarb Stalk.
The leaf clusters are stamped in Spring Moss & Limeade Ice. The roses are brushed with Wink of Stella & mounted with foam tape.  
The sentiment is from PTI Wonderful Words: Friends & I covered the die cut in Diamond Glaze.  Hard to tell, but the sequins are green, pink & white.  I'll be mailing this soon since I'm using it for a Valentine.  I'm also entering ATSM, HLS Anything Goes with Dies, The Playground, SSS WednesdayWord Art Wednesday.  Enjoy the hop--I know the gallery will be full of gorgeous cards!

I gasped when I saw this. Oh Greta, this is just beautiful. Black is not something I use much but it makes such an impact. I love the flowers against the black background cardstock and the sequins are perfect and really draw the eye. I suddenly feel the need for a cookie.
