Good morning friends. It's time for Papertrey's monthly blog hop challenge, and of course I had to play! It was a color challenge this time, and then add flowers to that also, and I just couldn't have been any happier! I chose the orange bouquet, and although my colors look a bit more "fallish" than the photo, I'm still really happy with the way my card turned out.
And here's my take on it:
I chose to use PTI's "Life" stamp set for this challenge as I haven't used it in quite a while, but once I started stamping away, I remembered exactly why I do like this set so much! Because I don't have any PTI ink pads yet (I get too excited by all the stamp sets and then there's no money left for ink pads!!), I used SU! pads instead: Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango, Groovey Guava, So Saffron, & Kiwi Kiss. It's hard to see in this picture, but if you click on it to enlarge, you will see that I embossed the "First Edition" design paper (SU!) with my chevron folder, and then sponged it a bit so it would stand out with Crumb Cake ink. I also added some cotton lace (Michael's dollar spot), Milk Chocolate seam binding ribbon (The Craft Spot), twine and tag (PTI - Tiny Tags), and a sponged fabric flower (SU!) to finish off the card. Again, more of a fall feeling card than spring, but I still love all the colors together and just how all the little details came together on this card. :0)
