Papertrey Ink July Blog Hop

Today, I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.

Our challenge was to use this beautiful photo as inspiration:


Isn't it lovely?
I was inspired to use my Floral Sketches stamp set to create my card.


I was inspired by the design on the wall, as well as the floral pillow to make my card.
I started by scoring my white cardstock panel in the same design as the wall.
I stamped my flowers onto coordinating diecuts and then stamped the outline images
in versamark and heat embossed them in gold.


I stamped the sentiment (from the Songbirds) in versamark onto a strip of navy cardstock
and heat embossed it in white.
I tucked in the one side for a nestled effect.

Thanks for looking!
