Happy Friday!  Today I am playing along with Papertrey's April Blog Hop Challenge!   This month is all about Embroidered Inspiration.  

April-Blog-Hop-Inspiration
I spent a few minutes the other day just  looking at the pictures Nicole chose for inspiration.  I like the black circle background of the first picture with the pop of flowers.  Next, I like the bold leafy and floral patterns of the third one across on top row.  Then, I loved the soft leafy feel for a background texture in the top middle.  Finally, I just love the white dots on the bottom left corner.   I decided to blend a little bit from each of the inspiration pieces that I liked.  I came up with this design.  I tried to stay fairly CAS with the card design.  

I am using PTI Embellished Elegance stamp set and dies  along with Bigger Blooms stamps and dies.  I also used the Vineyard Impressions Plate for my harvest gold background.  I combined some white, harvest gold, true black, and new leaf card stocks.  I used pure poppy, harvest gold, and new leaf inks for the flowers and leaves.   Snow pigment ink was used for sentiment along with some white ep.  

As for the dots, I am using some white acrylic paint and a stylus.  Makes for some quick dots!  Dries pretty fast, too!

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
