Papertrey Blog Hop - May 25


May is the month when many flowers finally go into full bloom after a long winter's sleep.  For the blog
hop this month Papertrey wants to see our favorite take on flowers.  So many possibilities with flowers, here is my take on this month's blog hop.






For my card I die cut all three sizes of Beautiful Blooms on Summer Sunrise cardstock.  I then stamped the three sizes of blooms from Sending You in Terra Cotta Tile ink.  I layered Chartreuse and white cardstock over a Spring Moss Base and rounded the corners of the white.  Then I stamped the stems from Flower Fusion #1 in Shabby Shutters Ink.  The flower tops were added with foam tape and embellished with a Harvest Gold button.

All Supplies from PaperTrey Ink unless otherwise noted:
 
Cardstock:  white, Spring Moss, Chartreuse, Summer Sunrise
Clear Stamps:  Sending You, Flower Fusion #1
Ink:  Terra Cotta, Shabby Shutters (Ranger), Black (Memento)
Dies:  Beautiful Blooms #2
Other:  foam tape, Harvest Gold button
