PTI May Blog Hop...

Hello!!  Stopping in with a card for today's PTI blog hop.  The inspiration photo is beautiful but I must admit that I really struggled with this one.  Tried several ideas last night, but came up with nothing.  After looking through the cards that have been posted I was finally able to come up with my card.  It is interesting to me how differently everyone sees the colors in the inspiration piece.  Me... I see blues and gray/greens in the leaves, as well as peach and a ruby red.  After trying a few different sets I finally went with PTI's Friendly Flowers.  I used PTI's Ocean Tides and MFT Cornflower for the leaves and Hero Arts Soft Cantaloupe for the large flower and a Hero Arts red for the small flowers.  After stamping everything with my MISTI I added in the little dots with a small acrylic block and a little stamp that came with the set.  The sentiment was stamped in black and then I added dots of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Morning Dew.  The panel was adhered to an Ocean Tides cardstock base.  Super simple and now I have another birthday card to add to my stash!!


Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and Ocean Tides; Stamps: PTI; Dies:  A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  PTI, Hero Arts and VersaFine; Nuvo Crystal Drops

Oh my goodness--this is wonderful, Rosemary! Never crossed my mind to use Friendly Flowers & I actually bought that set because of a card you made long ago! Pinning this so maybe I'll use it more--never have used the little dots & they're a wonderful element here!

Love this! I haven't used this stamp set in awhile, but you're making me thin I should. Your two-toned leaves are especially wonderful.
