Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

Blog hop inspiration
I always try to play along in the PTI Blog Hops.  This month the inspiration is so gorgeous it made it easy!  
To make the ombre panel I brushed on Blueberry Sky using a Nuvo stencil brush.  Have to say, think my 15+ yr old brushes work about the same, but the new ones are prettier--haha!  The flowers from Friendly Flowers were stamped in Sweet Blush, Pale Peony & Green Parakeet.  I used a green marker to smooth out the stems, so it's a bit darker.  The sentiment is from the same set & is stamped in Blueberry Sky.  I wrapped the die cut panel with silver thread, just for something different.  I love the simplicity of the inspiration photo, so in keeping with that I inlaid the panel into the die cut card front. Finished off with Rosewater Nuvo Jewel drops.  Love being able to get tiny drops like I used in the flower centers. Always tons of inspiration, so enjoy the hop & thanks so much for stopping by.  I'm also entering Allsorts & Word Art Wednesday.
