Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop Challenge


Fun inspiration photo for this month's PTI Blog Hop, but I simply used the beautiful pink & purple flowers for my card.
I combined the hop with the PTI MIM challenge Above & Below--a design I love.
However, my use of some bigger images resulted in the whole card front being covered. 
I'd still like to make another card more like Lizzie's.  I'm not happy with my choice of Soft Stone for the sponging & stenciling, but may send it anyway.  The flowers, leaves & sentiment are all from Friendly Flowers.  I used these colors of cardstock & ink:  Plum Pudding, Raspberry Fizz, Hisbiscus Burst, New Lawn & Vintage Jadeite.  Fun to use some of my huge collection of pearls.  Lots to see--enjoy the hop!  I'm also entering CAS-ual Fridays.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
