Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

If you're here to see my card for the Lily Pad Cards star challenge, please go HERE or scroll down one post.

I absolutely fell in love with this photo inspiration for the May Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink:

Blog hop inspiration

Isn't it stunning?!  I don't have too many PTI stamps yet, but I HAD to play.  Here's my card:

PTI May Blog Hop

supplies: white cardstock, Darice Damask embossing folder, A Muse black dot dp, Nesties Labels Eighteen die, PTI Friendship Jar Spring Fillers, VersaFine onyx black ink, Letraset bright green marker and Tombow N89 (light grey) marker, white baby ric-rac, Scrapbook Adhesives 3D foam squares

I left off a sentiment for now; I just didn't want to mess up the symmetry :))  I think this would work for a sympathy card, though.....

  20. Oh, my, Lin! Love this symmetrical design, the "bed" of texture (you are really into those texture plates - so cool), and how you used the gray pen to shadow the white flowers. Even though I am a "color" person, this combo is so striking. Enjoy the holiday!
