PTI July Blog Hop...

Hello!!  Here with my card for this month's PTI blog hop.  Love the sweet inspiration photo that Nichole provided.  Aqua and red is one of my favorite color combos... it is just yummy!


For my card today I used the Beautiful Brushstrokes stamps and dies, along with the smallest die from the Tipped Top die set.  The patterned paper is from Stampin Up!.  I really liked the little posey of red flowers placed atop the heart shaped doily and so used that as my starting point.  All the inks are from Stampin Up! (Ruby Red, Real Red and Cherry Cobbler for the flowers; Pear Pizzazz and Wild Wasabi for the leaves).  I had originally just had the large flower, but realized once I had put the card together that things were "off".  So this morning I die cut two of the smaller flowers and leaves, stamped them and added them to the card... definitely much better!  There is a doily on the card, but you can only see bits of it peeking out here and there.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Brushstrokes sentiments set and I added a few of the clear dew drop embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white, Stampin Up! Pool Party; PP:  Stampin Up (Coastal Cabana); Stamps & Dies:  PTI; Inks:  Stampin Up! & Memento; Doily:  Wilton; Embellishments:  PTI
