PTI July Blog Hop

Hi friends!  I'm playing along with this month's PTI Blog Hop.
Here's Nicole's inspiration photo for this month:
Blog Hop Inspiration

And here's my card:

I started by cutting some grey colored card stock using the Hexagon Cover Plate and trimming it off, keeping a random shape and adhered it to the card front.  I stamped some ink splats using MFT's Distressed Patterns and added the outside frame from Pretty Frame Die.  I cut and stamped the flowers and leaves from Painted Petals using Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, Soft Stone and Aqua Mist and the flower branch and bird from Spring Woods.

I popped the bird and spring branch up using foam tape to add dimension.  The sentiment is from Walk By Faith.  I added some candy dots to the centers of some of the small flowers and some gold dots for accents.


 Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have fun along the hop!

  3. Your card is so pretty. I used the same stamp set, but just not the bird...you and Marcia both used a bird that just fit perfectly on your cards. Awesome job! Beautiful card, my friend!
