Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop


Well, it's the 25th of the month, so that means it's time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
This month's challenge was an inspirational photo.


Isn't it pretty?
I was inspired by the navy tablecloth, the clear plates, 
the flowers and the polka dots on the vase.
Here's my card:

Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop Leigh Penner #cards

I used enchanted evening cardstock as my base and stamped my sentiment
(from Graceful Greetings) in versa mark and heat embossed it in white.
I diecut some polka dot vellum with the KIS Frames and layered them together.
Over these, I stamped on my Brushed Blooms diecut in limeade ice,
sweet blush, hibiscus burst & raspberry fizz.
I trimmed the diecut down my hand and added a couple of buttons and twine.

Gorgeous, Leigh! I thought about incorporating my new printed vellum, but I'm hoarding it. Do I really need Brushed Blooms? Keep telling myself I don't need another floral set, but I'll probably cave.
