Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop



It's time once again for the always enjoyable Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! This month, we were provided the following photo for creative inspiration:


I picked up on the colors and the three cubes at the bottom and inked up Gracious Vases to create this:


I cut the three windows using the Take Three die on both my card base and a piece of Spring Moss cardstock. I embossed the Spring Moss with the Vineyard Impression plate and added by sentiment, from the Gracious Vases set, on to the card front. I then stamped the three flower and vase combos on the inside of the card so they would peek out of the windows. The vases were stamped in black, the flowers in Spring Moss (the center bunch was stamped with CTMH ink Honey) and I added some Copic coloring to bring in some of the pinks and blues from the photo.

I am also posting this at Papertrey Playhouse for the current Thank You card challenge.

I hope you like it and am looking forward to hopping to everyon'e blog through out the day!
