PTI February Blog Hop

Hello all you PTI fans~ Don't you love this time of the month when we get to see such a beautiful inspiration photo as a jumping point for the PTI blog hop?!?
I do!
Here's their fabulous inspiration photo:

Talk about gorgeous, right?
I loved playing with these colors and lots of different elements to make a collage style card.

I started with a Rustic Cream card base and did a little stenciling in the background using Abandoned Coral distress ink. The fern leaf is cut using a spellbinders die and I made a little invoice using a stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms, stamped in Soft Stone ink. From there, I stamped one of the sweet butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies, in Spring Moss, Simply Chartreuse and Ripe Avacado. The roses from Sweet Life were stamped using Memento's Angel Pink and PTI's Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet. The leaves are stamped in Simply Chartreuse. I added a sentiment and die cut in Dark Chocolate using PTI's Big Hugs and finished it off with a few light colored sequins, as seen in the photo.
I really love this color combo and the opportunity to make a collage style card.
Sometimes it's just fun to step outside of the ordinary and do something different.

I'll also be adding this to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday
The Sisterhood of Crafters ~ Spring

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge ~ Anything goes

Enjoy hopping!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
