August 2014 Blog Hop Challenge

Good morning friends.  Playing along with the monthly blog hop challenge over at Papertrey Ink today. 

 
 
The challenge was to keep it simple, bold, and elegant (at least that's how I interpreted it!).  I used one of the images from PTI's "Round Repeats" and Raspberry Fizz ink and stamped just down the left hand side of my card.  I added a strip of gold glitter paper on the edge and gold sequins for the center of each image.  My sentiment is from PTI's "On the Farm" and is embossed with gold.  My envelope liner mimics the card with Raspberry Fizz DSP from the Bitty Dot Basics paper pad and a couple strips of the gold glitter paper. 
 
Here's the inspiration photo:
