PTI ~ January Blog Hop

This months inspiration photo for the PTI Blog Hop was a challenge for me. I'm not a very graphic person and the colors challenged me as well. Here's the inspiration photo:

I'm not very good at thinking outside of the box either. With that said, I made two cards because I really couldn't tell what colors would work well for this. Here's my first card:

I picked up on the white washed wood behind some of the orange images and made this card using Rosie Posie. The colors I used were Hawaiian Shores and Ocean Tide for the leaves and Orange Zest and Canyon clay for the flowers.


Then I thought the colors weren't quite right so I went with this card, using a more graphic design and Happiness In Bloom. I changed the blues to Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky and Enchanted Evening.

Be sure to stop by Nichole's blog to join in on the fun! Have fun along the hop!
Blessings~ Birgit
