Happy Thursday!  I am popping in with a fun card to share.  I am playing along with Papertrey Ink's Create Along With Us July 2015 Challenge.  There are so many gorgeous cards to choose from all the designer creations, but I had to chose in order to play.  I chose this card by Betsy Veldman.  I was drawn to the bold colors, black background, and touch of sponging on the left side.  I used the stamps and dies that I have to recreate the look.

I started with a smooth white card stock base.  I then cut a PTI white linen card stock panel that I sponged on the left side with grape jelly and razzleberry inks.  I add the true black panel to the top of the linen using foam mounting tape to add dimension.  I tied my twine and bow then glued to the card base.

For the flowers, I used PTI The Sweet Life.  I stamped the roses in shades of grape jelly with royal velvet and razzleberry with electric red.  Betsy did add some summer sunrise to hers and I actually love that added color pop.  I chose to leave that color off.  For the leaves I used limeade and sour apple inks.  I arranged flowers with some foam tape and glued on the leaves.  I sponged another piece of linen card stock with grape jelly and razzleberry inks.  I die cut this panel with the scripted sentiments die.  I layered this colorful on over two other plain die cut pieces for added stability and dimension.  I finished with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
