Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

Please scroll down for my PRS post.

I always look forward to the PTI Blog Hops & this month the inspiration photo is beautiful.  I love the aqua background & lovely pinkish roses along with touches of gold, so that's what I used for my card. 

The white panel was die cut with the oval in the Window Works die set--my nod to the shape of the cup opening.  I brushed on some Aqua Mist ink & then inserted the white flourish back into the negative space.  The sentiment is also PTI & is stamped in Aqua Mist.  I backed the window with vellum & attached it over a piece of cardstock inked with the edge of the Aqua Mist cube to give a hint of the texture in the background of the inspiration piece. 
The Sweet Life rose & leaves were inked in Delicata Ruby Red & Pink Shimmer, PTI Lemon Tart, Limeade Ice & Green Parakeet.  I added a thin gold mat & the card front is covered with Aqua Mist.  The rose is brushed with a shimmer pen & is mounted with foam tape.  Finished off with glitter Nuvo Drops.  Always lots to see, so enjoy the hop & thanks for stopping by.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with DiesSSS Monday & SSS Wednesday.

  5. What a pretty card, Greta! It has such a soft, vintage feel especially with the oval cut out which reminds me of a cameo pin. I love the inks and shimmer on the rose, the rounded edges of your focal panel with the gold framing and your photo technique.
