Hello friends!! I planned ahead, again, this month and got my card for the July PTI blog hop done... Yay!! This month the hop is all about color combos and every single one is gorgeous!
I recently purchased the PTI set The Sweet Life. And in retrospect I'm wondering why I didn't purchase it sooner as it is just gorgeous! Since I had just purchased it I was anxious to ink it up and the blog hop was the perfect chance. Initially I was going to use the Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Limeade Ice and New Leaf combo, but when I realized I needed three shades of ink for the flowers I had to make a different pick. After looking at all my inks I settled on the Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart, Limeade Ice and New Leaf combo. For my inks I used the following: Hero Arts Orange Soda, Butter Bar and Green Hills, Stampin Up! So Saffron and Memento Pear Tart. The layout for the card is based on the current Sketchbook Saturday Sketch. I partially embossed one side of the cardstock with the Sizzix Modern Wallpaper embossing folder and then stamped the sentiment in black ink. The flowers and leaves were adhered using foam dimensionals and then sequins in yellow and two shades of green were added. As my little guy said today "easy peasy, lemon squeezy"!
Thanks for stopping by...
