December Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!



Happy Tuesday!  I finally had a chance to get crafty.  Bittersweet since all of my Christmas company has left now.   I just had to make a card for this month's PTI Blog Hop Challenge!





For my card I focused on the background colors and just one main flower with a few tiny buds.  





I die cut and stamped the large flower and buds from Especially You and white embossed.  I colored with ranger inks using an aqua brush.  I die cut a decorative edge into my simply chartreuse card stock.  I stamped the panel using Background Basics: Celestial Skies to mimic background greenery detailing using simply chartreuse ink. 




  I added arranged my flowers with the center using foam tape.  I also popped up the background panel to accent the decorative edge from Edgers to the Point dies. I die cut the huge hugs die three times and glued together for added dimension.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for hopping by!
