Papertrey Ink July 2012 Blog Hop

It's July 25th, and that means it's time for the monthly Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  It has been a VERY long time since I have played along and I'm so glad I made the time to get inky.  


The challenge this month is to use a floral set and the inspiration photo/colors below to create your project.

My PTI cardstock variety pack came in very handy for this as Melon Berry and Berry Sorbet had never really been on my radar.  Guess what's going in my cart when I order next? ;)  I'm very pleased with this combination of colors and how my finished card came together.

I stamped the triple rose image from Life is Sweet (new favorite set!) with Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, and Berry Sorbet ink.  The leaves are stamped with Simply Chartreuse, I just stamped off the base of the leaves before stamping on my die cut so I would still be able to use the highlight stamp.  This set is so easy to use and creates the most delicious images.  LOVE!  I used the Cane Impression Plate on white to give texture to the background of my card and mounted it on a base of Melon Berry cardstock.  I used Mat Stack #4 and Layerz Mat Stack #4 to make an anchor for my sentiment and embellishment, cut from SS White and Bitty Dot Melon Berry.  I tied it all together (pun intended!) with some Harvest Gold satin ribbon.

I hope you like my card!  You can check out other entries in the blog hop by going to Nichole Heady's blog HERE.  Happy Wednesday!
