Papertrey Ink August 2011 Blog Hop!

GO, ME! I didn't think I was going to get to participate in this month's blog hop, because I had not had a chance to do a project for it yet. But, I managed to squeeze in some stamping time today and made a card! Yay! The challenge this month was to use the inspiration photo that Nichole provided. (See the bottom of this post for the photo.) The things that jumped out at me from the photo were:
1. The colors pink and green
2. The pretty flowers
3. The jar - maybe since I just recently started to aquire the Friendship Jar and Fillers series! :)
4. The pattern on the inside of the case - which I don't think is exactly damask, but it reminded me of damask, and screamed out for me to use Damask Designs! :)

I was also eager to use the new Bloom Builders #3 die, so I made my flowers out of that, using Daydreamer for the stems.


The flowers are Raspberry Fizz and Hibiscus Burst. I used Tiny Tags for the sentiment, and added another small single image from Damask Design to tie it into the background.


The original inspiration photo is below.  Thanks for looking!

Wasn't this inspiration photo just screaming to use this new bloom die?? Your blooms turned out so pretty! Love the simple brad you used for the centers. I ended up using wire to "put mine together". Beautiful card Debbie!
