PTI May Blog Hop...Building Bouquets...

Saturday, May 25, 2013

Heading out with my family on a little vacation today.  But I squeezed in a little time during packing for a card for today's blog hop with PTI.  I chose the following 'bouquet builder' color scheme...


That's one of my all time favorite color combo's...I love yellows and pinks together!  I am kind of thinking now, that I should have challenged myself to a new color scheme, though.  I used the Beautiful Blooms #1, and Heart to Heart die sets to create some flowers...  


A couple of punches were used also, for the smaller flowers and for the center of the largest one.
I also used a couple of flourishes from Fancy Flourishes as a background for my spray of blossoms...


Those 'Think Big Favorites' sentiments sure do come in handy!  This is not at all the look I was going for initially, but this is what I ended up with...and I had fiddle-farted (did she just say that???) around with it for long enough that I sure wasn't going to ditch it!!!  So I hope you like it!  Enjoy the hop!  If I can pry a computer away from the kids in the hotel tonight...I look forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with, and what the favorite color schemes were!
Thanks so much for stopping in!

  7. This is a work of art. (I want you to be on Papertrey's design team.) How do you make such beautiful cards, AND leave all the fabulous comments for others? I love how you even mixed up the leaves. (You can tell I'm excited because all of these ideas are in no particular order.)

    Have fun on your vacation, and I hope it doesn't rain, or be grey, all the time like it has been here in Massachusetts.
