*whew!* I wasn't sure if I was going to get a card made for this month's PTI Blog Hop, but it did come together at the last minute (I won't confess just how last minute that was! ;) For this month's challenge, Nichole provided a lovely inspiration photo:
I pulled three primary things from the inspiration photo:
1. The color combination (which I translated into PTI colors of Spring Rain, Sweet Blush, and Berry Sorbet, with a little bit of Spring Moss thrown in the mix)
2. The mix of pretty patterns arranged in linear blocks, especially the blue stripes and the damask
3. Those gorgeous, big pink roses
As I was making the card, I wasn't sure what sentiment/occasion I was going to use... but I looked at it at one point and thought "hey, this looks like a Mother's Day card!" so that's where it went - check that off my card-making to do list! I used Damask Designs tone-on-tone on the background panel, and Faux Ribbon the for the stripes. The flowers and leaves are from Rosie Posie, and the "happy" is from Make a Wish (selectively inked), with the "mother's day" from Pretty Peonies.
I popped up the largest rose on the Mat Stack 1 + Layerz focal point, which itself is also popped up on the card base. And of course, I added those sweet little scalloped borders with the heart border die (I think someone needs to take it away from me.... I can't seem to stop using it! LOL!)
Three little pink Creative Charms rhinestones add the perfect finishing touch!
Thanks for looking, and thanks to Nichole and PTI for another great Blog Hop challenge!
