Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - March 2018

Hello friends.  It's the 25th and that means it's time for Papertrey Ink's monthly BLOG HOP.  This month's inspiration photo is awesome...take a look:


Wouldn't you LOVE to have that arrangement sitting on an entry way table or for your centerpiece on your dining room table??!!  I immediately thought of the Nesting stamp set and that's where my card started.

 
I stamped the nest with Classic Kraft ink and then rocked the edges in Cocoa Bean ink using my MISTI, and then added the leaves with Simply Chartreuse and Ripe Avocado inks.  The die that cuts the nest leaves an opening in the center of it and made a perfect place to tuck my flowers from the Bitty Bouquets in to.  I used Melon Berry and Hibiscus Burst for the tulips and Bright Buttercup for the other little flowers.  I used a layer of Blueberry Sky to mimic the wall and table in the inspiration photo and then added the white die cut layer using the Mix & Mat: Confetti die.  My sentiment I embossed in silver on a strip of vellum using the Tulip Time stamp set.  I know there's no bird in this inspiration photo, but the little guy from the Brushed Birds set just seemed to fit right into that little spot on the side of the basket.  A few sequins and some white baker's twine finished off my card that I'm going to use for my mom's 86th birthday that's coming up in early April.


Time to get hoppin my friends...I just LOVE visiting all the blogs to see how everyone interpreted the photo!  Check it all out right HERE!! 

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
