Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop

It's the 25th of the month, so that can only mean one thing ... the Papertrey Ink Monthly Blog Hop!

The challenge: May is the month when many flowers finally go into full bloom after a long winter's sleep.  For the blog hop this month we want to see your favorite take on flowers.  You can stamp backgrounds, create custom floral embellishments, showcase unique flower center additions (buttons, rhinestones, beads, etc...), flowers die-cut from different materials (like fabric, felt, vellum, etc...) or anything else you can dream up!

I used my first and one of my favourite flower sets, Spiral Bouquet and combined it with Mojo Challenge #192, Make It Monday's Challenge #16 to make a sympathy card and CC324 to use Baja Breeze, Soft Suede and Perfect Plum. I really don't like making sympathy cards - they're just not a happy occasion are they?! I thought these colours were soft enough yet still pretty enough to make a sympathy card.


Stamps: Spiral Bouquet, Butterfly Dreams, Embellishments all from PTI

Papers: Perfect Plum, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree DSP all from SU

Inks: Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum, Baja Breeze all from SU

Accessories: Soft Suede Ribbon (retired), Scallop Edge Punch both from SU, Circle Nestabilities, Pearls from Lakeland

And that's all from me today folks! Not like me to only do 1 card in a post :P Thanks for stopping by!
