PTI May 2013 Blog Hop


Blog-hop-logo
The challenge this month for Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop is to use the coordinating colors of one of the Bouquet Builders to create a floral card. I chose the orange one mainly because I had substitutes for those PTI colors I don't own…yet:

For something a little different I decided to use the Half and Half die upside down (is there really a right side up), and embossed my sentiment using white embossing powder. The Harvest Gold background texture is PTI's canvas/linen impression plate, and the flower center is the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder from Sizzix. A tiny clear rhinestone is attached to the orange sequin to finish it off.

Great movement on your card. Unique way you turned the Hal and half die upside down and the way you used the squares to decorate it. So clever!

I love this color combo! I am inspired by your use of the square prints stamps. That stamp set is so much fun and very versatile.
