Papertrey 5th Anniversary Day 5

Today's inspiration comes from Pinterest, that all consuming addiction whereby you think you were just looking for 5 minutes but it was actually an hour...or two.  :)

Today I searched for soft blues and greens because I wanted to use my Aqua Mist ink that had not been opened yet.  I came across this picture of a bouquet of hydrangea--my favourite garden flower.  Thus my inspiration was born.  The groundhog in Wiarton, Ontario didn't see his shadow last week so I think I have spring on my mind.






All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, SpringMoss
Stamps: Flower Fusion # 6 & 7
Ink: Aqua Mist (PTI), Memento (Tsukineko)
Dies: Flower Fusion #6, Picket Fence
Impression Plate:  Woodgrain
other: Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse felt, Aqua Mist Swiss Dot ribbon

Very pretty, Tracey. ;-) I almost put that fence die in my cart this last go round! I think I need to get it.

Love the aqua mist and spring moss and simply chartreuse together, and that ribbon is delicious - wow! Lovely card. ;-)

This is a beautiful, spring-like card. I love your inspiration photo, and the card you made from it. It was about 75 or so her today, definitely feeling like spring, so I can totally relate to your card. Also, thanks for always leaving such kind comments on my blog. You always brighten my day.

Gorgeous Tracy! I love hydrangeas and had them in my wedding! I love your sweet card! Love Aqua Mist - it was the first "pack" of card stock I ordered along with "blush" from Papertey Ink.
