Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge


I wasn't able to play along in last month's blog hop, but I found some time today to sneak in a card.  This month's theme was flowers. . .and to show your favorite take on flowers.  I usually like flowers to be sunny and bright, so I went with a Summer Sunrise and Orange Zest combo using the Spiral Bouquet set.  This is one of my favorite flower sets because the flowers are different and "lively" and add some spunk to a card.  :) 

I die cut a piece of white cardstock using the Sending You Die Set.  I then stamped the flowers in Summer Sunrise and the outlines in Orange Zest.  The stems and leaves were stamped in Ripe Avocado.  I stamped the sentiment in Fresh Snow in on True Black cardstock.  On the card base, I clear embossed some Polka Dot Basics.  Finally, I added some glitter to the flower for some sparkle.  All pieces were added to the card base with foam tape for some dimension.  You can see more favorite takes on flowers here.  Thanks for stopping by!

Very pretty and a great color combo. I love how subtle the polka dots are, yet they add just a slight touch of whimsy to the design. Love it!
